    Have you done a simpler bench test? It looks like it’s maybe over extrusion, but there are a lot of things going on with that little ship.

    I like this one:

    I scale it larger in X and Y and smaller in Z. The complete fill layers tell me a lot about over exteusion because they overfill.

    I agree it could be over extrusion. In addition to that it looks like there isn’t an extrusion fan blowing to cool the plastic as it extrudes.  PLA really likes to get cooled off quickly after it come out of the extruder.  It makes it really smooth and shiny.  If it stays too hot for a few seconds it can change shapes and look rough and lumpy like that.

    Oh I don’t have any cooling ducts. The printer was  given to me by a coworkers friend. Is the flashforge The creator. This was to help me build the mpcnc.
