Spiralize seem on specific object

Recommended Posts


I have this vase I made in 3dsMax and when printing it with spiralize I still have a seem visible. This time the seem is not at every layer and is not cause by a z step but looks to be caused by a toolpath movement.

This is the model


Looking in layer view you can see small steps every now and then which I usually don't see in objects that have corners in them.



This can be reproduced in 14.07, 14.12 and 15.01 RC3.


Settings seems to have few effect on it but just in case:

0.08 layer height

0.8 shell

1 top/bottom

0 infill

0.4 nozzle

spiralize on
