The blobs happen after the line. For some reason the nozzle pauses too long after and when it goes to the next line. Coasting doesnt do anything. I use more retraction 7-9mm but that was before I calibrated my extrusion settings. I havent used simplify3d lately. Or should I say S3D is better if you want to print something quickly and the supports are spectacular. If I want to get a perfect print I have to use Cura. I have been able to get s3d to make the blobs much smaller but I was printing .1 layer height.
To the guys point about a lot of people using it and not complaining. Most people don't expect the level of perfection that I want. Even some of the bloggers prints look horrible in comparison.
I will attach a couple of pictures. With cura I was able to print a gear bearing with PETG. If anyone has printed with petg you know how much of a B1tch that is. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53451. It took a while to get the settings right but it pops loose with very little force and is smooth as butter. It was impossible to do with S3D. I havent tried the upgraded version.
I am running a cr-10 upgraded to cr-10s (Board and LCD). Upgraded to TH3D firmware (Marlin), EZABL, Bondtech direct drive extruder (The direct drive is recent I didn't have it when I printed the gear bearing or much else. Still getting the settings down), frame Stiffeners, Hard ABS mounts, I need to put a new fan mod on using stock right now because of Direct drive extruder.
Here are some test prints. That is a hard drive under them for size reference. (The dragon and the girl are old/test prints.)
