ps I typically print something like a 20mm square about 3mm high with about 20% infill and 4 layers top and bottom. I adjust my extruder steps/mm until my top surface is perfectly smooth with no gaps. I leave extrusion multiplier at 1 for all prints. Make sure you measure your filament diameter exa...

Re: Gaps in top layer

Hi It seems that you print with PLA so you should have an extrusion multiplier of 0.92 or close to this (1 with ABS). What is your infill ? Did you try to follow the instructions on the quality guide ? https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quality-troubleshooting/#gaps-between-infill-and-outline...
