Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

That's what I'm trying to figure out...I figured it was my settings in S3D but I'm not sure what. I wouldn't think it was my printer settings otherwise my Cura prints would be affected as well. I'm not sure what settings in S3D to adjust as I am still really new to the software. So far I like it a l...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

no accel/jerk control in s3d if you got this after firmware upgrade (not changing anything else) then it's the firmware settings... not much in the firmware really - steps/per/mm for XYZE - max speed for XYZE - acceleration for XYZE - jerk for XYZE so do some experiments with those, drop them big t...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

I figured out how to look at the G-Code and verified that on the default acceleration and jerk settings in Cura...this does NOT a M201, M203, or M204 command to use a different value from what is on the printer...the issue must be somewhere else.

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

btw the other issue that can make this ribbing you have prominent is backlash, so if you have one XY position when head is going CW and other when it is going CCW then it can be backlash, especially if you have springs on your XY axes (for e.g. those spring tighteners for belts that will cause this...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

I'm starting to think that when you leave Cura at 0 and 0 for acceleration, or undefined, that it actually defaults to a lower setting than what the printer is set as. That could be a big reason why the print quality jumped hugely from 15.X to 2.X. As for the code I had some questions on that. When ...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

So today I recompiled and reflashed Marlin on my printer. There was some changes I wanted to make. So while I was in there I lowered the acceleration and jerk settings. I don't know if that actually did anything or if just reflashing the firmware made a difference...but my print quality got better. ...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

Thanks Doug that's what I'm doing...though the differences really aren't standing out as obvious as one would think. Also interesting is the prints after where I got rid of the banding are much poorer in quality than the one with the banding. The one with the banding is even smoother than the Cura p...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

Interesting...So I changed the process profile from the Anet A8 to the Prusa I3 and the lines went away. The quality was crap but the lines were gone. Still tinkering...

Re: Horizontal lines in test tower

look at the g-code generated in cure, check in startup section if you have acceleration settings ... search for M201 and M204 and M205 .. then look for same codes in g-code generated by the s3d, then look at the process settings in s3d, advanced has to be on, scripts tab, starting script, see if yo...
