Recommended Posts

Posted · Couple of questions on settings

I am currently working with ABS on the UM2. I have a small issue where on the outside edges of my parts I am getting a small ball of extra plastic.

Or does anyone have any other suggestions on minimizing these defects?

The rest of the parts look great, so I don't think I am overextruding...

Wasn't sure what the "z scar" was so i did some research, you are correct that is what it is. I guess there is no easy way to minimize it since its kind of inherent due to the need for Z to step. I can't use spiralize on most of my prints since I don't typically print single walled items...
