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

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

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.

Like Robert said its hard to know for sure without seeing anything and from what I understand it could come from a number of things.

Infill overlap is covered already, print speed, change in speed between infill and shell, nozzle temp, retraction settings.

The good point is that you found a way to get rid of it :)
