FYI: printed my first motor mount and got a funny seam as well. I checked the gcode: it's not in the code. My guess it's the point where the printhead moves to the next layer. Nothing to worry about. Printer: Ender 3 Pro, slicing software: PrusaSlicer 2.0, filament: Extrudr NX-2, layer height 0.2.Hi guys,
I've been getting pretty good progress on improving my 3D prints, but for some strange reason, I get this weird impairment on every printed copy of the motor mount. It's pretty much on the exact same spot and same pattern. Anyone else experienced this issue?

I would like to take this opportunity to thank @Pyronious for not only designing the board, putting a lot of work into documentation and video tutorials, but also for organizing and supporting the group purchase and shipping.For those of you building SFX-100 rigs (or adding traction loss / belt tensioners), I do have a small quantity of SFX-100 shields left over from the last group buy. If you are in need of a shield, please send me a PM for more details. Thanks!
That artifact is called a Z seam. It comes from your slicing software. Technically, it is in your g-code (but not the STL file). Set your perimeter (or layer) start points to “random” to eliminate this.View attachment 323888

What did you use as a replacement for the slot nuts that you’re supposed to order from Kinetik too?I bought a single length of ITEM24 profile in the UK that I built the first actuator from. Get in contact with your local ITEM supplier you can probably get the order changed. I would reccomend getting ITEM to quote for tapping the holes for you as well unless you have the correct tap. My ITEM actuator has been running without any problems for nearly 6 months.
Works fine. I don't run the system at full-strength (I use Simtools + Thanos controller on my system, FYI). I think if you did 100% raw, unfiltered output, this may shake the screen beyond a reasonable level. I've had it hard mounted for about 2 months now, with no issues.
