Trouble on geometry edges (dents)
Hi to all,
I recently was printing something at an angle of about 83° , usually this angle isn´t a problem but then I had some dents in the edges
and wondered where they came from. I took a look at the slicer and noticed they are even there, though the geometry seems to be quite ok.
(have a look at the screenshots)
It is shown in slicer in every layer height. So this probably wouldn´t change anything.
How can avoid this ?
Have you checked those edges in your design software?
Is the slicer being faithful to something inherited from earlier in the chain?
Is it possible that this is just the seam on your prints? What happens if you go Print settings -> Seam position?
@diem yes checked
@bnogler Yes that does change something though not fixing all. Alright, so that is the point where the layer starts and ends and then makes the seam? Hmm how could I fix that, rotating the object doesn ´t change it.
Seams are basically unavoidable unless you use 'spiral vase'. Go: print settings -> vertical shells -> spiral vase.
Seams shouldn't affect the structural integrity too bad, it's just about appearance.
@bnogler Yes I know I can not avoid them, I just thought of changing the startpoint or somehting like that so the seam would be at a different angle.
And if it's really related to the seam, in PrusaSlicer 2.3 you can use the paint-on seam function.
(Even so in my hands, in less than a handful of tries, it seemed hit or miss whether the slicer would actually honor my painted-on seam)
@fuchsr Oh, that looks great. I´ll give it a try.
It actually works pretty well.
Great! Glad it works.
