And since some firmwares disable it, most slicers don't imp...

Re: Small voids/blobs in external perimeters at layer change

@gregspruce, you were absolutely correct! Here is a picture of the same 3D Benchy model, sliced with Slic3r PE, using the stock settings at 0.2 mm layer height. No retraction artifacts on the outer surface at all! Time to start learning that program, I guess... IMG_1576.JPG I was using a custom bui...

Re: Zits on travel from perimeter to perimeter

I've tried quite a few variations on coasting/wiping/retraction/extra restart distance. I have one going now with much higher coast and extra restart distance, I'll post my pictures and settings when I get home.

Zits on travel from perimeter to perimeter

Hopefully this is in the right forum location. I am having trouble getting the last bit of surface quality dialed in.
