Hello Forum, it has been a year since [media=1105][/media]i've got my machine, and im very happy, but i have to say that in the last time, the exterior surfaces doesn't come out very smooth, is they're like too noisy, because the layers are Really visible... its hard to explain, is smh similar like banding, what kind of corrective measures should i take in order to restablish the proper behaviour of my U2?

Many thanks

I'm not sure if this will solve your problem, but I've managed to get much more even layers by tightening up all the screws on my printer (set screws on the pulleys and motors as well as all of the screws holding the frame together), tightening the springs on the bed to reduce bouncing, and keeping the rods oiled/greased.

    • "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.
