  • Hello

    I hope holiday were good for those in US.

    Any way to make this print better?

    The seam in the middle is where it is starting/ending the perimeter loops. This can't really be avoided. The rough texture could be due to a couple reasons, but it looks to me like your filament might be wet. What material is it?

    Oh thanks. I was hoping there was a setting to have that start in different locations.

    Well I was more worried about that seam. But it's Inland PLA. I think there was some stringing along that curve that makes it look rough. I had only opened up this roll a few hours ago. Can get wet that fast? I was thinking about getting a food dehydrator.

    PLA usually takes quite some time to absorb moisture. We have many spools which have been opened for months and still print just fine.



  • Oh. Thanks for your input.
