Z seam fix?
March 16, 2023 03:35PM
It's my first post here, so I apologize if this is something that have been widely discussed before.
I'm sorta new to 3D-printing, only printing now and then.
My printer is an Artillery X1 and I'm using Slic3r as this came with the machine. Pretty satisfied, no problem there.
My problem that I noticed is:
I'm printing a holder to a Capto tool (sandvik coromant) which has a rotary/wankel/dorito-shaped coupling.
This shape is therefore inner wall, so the Z seam is sorta ruining my tolerances.
I therefore wonder if there is something I could try to change in the software to get mostly rid of this?

Best regards

Try the random seam location option instead of aligned. That will scatter the tiny bumps all over the print. Also you might try printing the outer perimeters first (default is inside first).
