Hi guys,

I have quality problems.
Can someone tell me which parameter could be linked with these issues?

These look to be what are known as "blobs" or "zits". They are formed at the stop and start points and can usually be taken care of with your retraction, coasting and extra restart distance settings. We have a fantastic section of our Print Quality Guide that covers this in detail. I have included the link below but please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. ... s-and-zits

To be truthful….your photos are dark and blurry and its sort of impossible to really understand what you're wanting users to look at!

Only one photo has anything anywhere near identifiable as a printing issue...and S3D-Alex has managed to pick up on that and give a very basic suggestion as to what it might be, and what reading matter there is for you to read.

If you really want to get some quick and useful help, you're going to have to be a lot more specific about what you're wanting us to look at....and provide some descriptive information about what you're wanting help on....and also describe what you've been changing, etc!
