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

    • "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.
