Little bumps on the surface and how I got rid of them

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the infill left not only a little ridge where it overlaps with the shell, but also little droplets now and then. First I thought this doesn't matter because it is inside the obect. But then I noticed that on the following layer, these droplets are sometimes dragged to the surface when the shell is plotted, and there they remain as bumps.

I simply reduced the infill overlap (in the experts menu in Cura) from 15% to 8% and the bumps were gone.

Maybe it's helpful to someone.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
