Z Axis Lines

Hi,

I am trying to print this object and lines keep appearing along the Z axis at different intervals, here are my settings, http://imgur.com/Sr3zVac

Layer height: 0.06mm

Material Faberdashery Red PLA,

Temperature 230

Bed Temp 60

Speed 30mm/s

material flow 100%

It looks like the material is failing to print fully on certain layers, I tried increasing the material flow to 120%, it smoothed the lines out a bit but nothing drastic.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Leigh

    Well I wonder about a couple of things. Firstly your temp. must be too hot. I print Faberdashery red at 30mm/s, layer .200 at 210c; so that is 3X the amount of material at 20c lower.

    Also I wonder how you set your print up to reach your minimum layer temp.? What is the temp and what is your infill setting? Also were you using 100%on the fans?

    Did you do the under extrusion test with same filament?
