4.1 has a selection for random so the zits are all around the the part.. I guess I am just looking for more than the medium can deliver.. I entered this with out really knowing what the limitations are.. I did know the surface was rough.. MG Factory print of their bracelet I assume uses vase mode as it is a single wall hollow object and looks really freaking great.. setting my expectations too high. My assume is vase mode only works with hollow objects? Being an obsessive perfectionist can be a bad thing with imperfect mediums..zemlin wrote: ↑Sun Mar 25, 2018 7:23 amYou cannot completely eliminate the point where the filament stops printing on the outside of the part. You can work to minimize the retraction marks but you will have a small blip and normally some ringing at that point as well. I have had a few parts that printing with near perfect exterior surfaces. I sliced with S3D 4.0 and RANDOM start points. 4.0 starts each perimeter layer at a random point so the cumulative impact of the start point from layer to layer is eliminated. 4.01 uses the same point for all perimeters on that layer so the start point is more noticeable.
In the retraction settings, COAST will stop the extruder before the end of the motion. that can reduce the blip at the end of the line. Wipe can also help as the extruder doesn't stop.
We never ever get any warning about anything to do with updates....ever!Any word on the next fix release?
