Cura Printed Non-Uniform Top Surface

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Printed Non-Uniform Top Surface

Here's some of my print settings:

Nozzle Size: 0.5mm

Bottom/Top Thickness: 0.84mm

Shell Thickness: 1.05mm

Filament Diameter 1.85mm

And here's a pic of the non-uniform top surface:


Does Nozzle Size need to divide evenly into Bottom/Top Thickness to get a uniformly looking top surface?

A slight backlash issue might be the reason. The effect appears usually when Cura changes the print direction for a multiple-part infill.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
