Re: strings in a tube

Ahh, I see. Without having posted your parts file, it's difficult to really know what the problems could be.

Re: quality of bottom and top faces of a tube ( vertical )

Recognize there will be artifacts of the process and the Top Layer on perimeter walls will expose the wall’s shells (even on a Flat surface the wall shells will show).

Re: how to flatten the top of a model
