Repeating artifact on prints

MK3S PETG print 

In these 2 identical prints there is a band of thickening that is visible on both of them at the exact same place.  It's not a layer shift, it is actually thicker on both sides.  Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Do those shifts correspond to internal change such as shift from sparse to solid infill? If you view each layer in preview mode in PrusaSlicer, do you see a change in the internal wall structure? Save your current  3MF project file, zip it up, and attach it to a reply here so we can see your part & settings and give better recommendations. 

You might try searching for the term "buldge" (yes, that spelling) for similar issues and solutions.

I didn't save a 3MF file unfortunately.  I only have the stl and gcode, and I can't upload those here apparently.  But, no, there shouldn't be any change in the internal structure at that level.  In fact, the part is almost completely solid/perimeters.

If you ZIP Compress the STL and / or the G code, you will be able to add them here

Ok, I will see if I can figure out how to zip and upload the files.  I know how to unzip files, but zipping them...I'm not really familiar with the process.

in windows file explorer, right click on the file name, and choose, 'Send to: Compressed (Zipped) folder'
