Having a bit of problems

      I’ve just recently gotten a 3d printer to help get some terrain on my table. so far I’ve been able to work out most of the troubleshooting steps to get good-looking prints, but I’ve run into an issue I’m not sure how to fix. I want to get things just right before I start printing off terrain for my hobby table.

      I’m using an anycubic mega zero 2.0 with hatchbox grey PLA filament and printing at 190c on the hot end with a 60c heated bed. I’ve been able to fix some over extruding problems I was having but now I’ve noticed a problem with some uneven layers that seem to pop up in the same spots on my test prints.

      these uneven lines show up on the same spot

      I also printed out this barrier as a test, not sure why it looks a bit more…sloppy I guess? I used the same settings as my test prints

      any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hey Commisar Roach!

      The cat image there seems to be showing some signs of a layer shift. out of curiosity does the Mega Zero use a belt to move the extruder through the X or Z axis? if so you may need to tighten the belt up a little to make sure it takes the extruder to exactly where it needs to be at each level.

      For the barriers I have two questions, what layer height are you using and how warm is it where you are atm. The sloppiness might be the cooling system not being able to cool it quick enough and it oozing a little to create that slightly blobby look.
