    ​Thanks for the reminder. I had been meaning to do that.

    So this is what I get with KISSlicer even if I turn off de-string. It pauses slightly at the start/stop of each layer, leaving extra filament. You can pretty much guess where that is on this one. On round objects, it will leave a bulging seam because of this.

    If I turn off retraction in Cura, I don't get this at all. There is no pause and it is very hard to tell where the start/stop point was (virtually no seam).
    I did some investigating and it would seem I had made an assumption. I assumed that when you uncheck retraction in cura it just doesn't put in the m227 command, and the starting scripts m227 would end up being used. But instead what cura does is puts an m227 s0 p0, so a speed and distance of retraction of 0.

    I'm doing some test prints with cura atm but so far aren't seeing anything like the above prints issues, even with retraction checkmarked. Or is it just kisslicer that giving the really horrible prints?

    Do we have a "final" version of Simplify3D profile for the Cube3?

    Well I don't know if I would say "final", but my latest prints are pretty good. I would give it a firm version 0.1alpha.

    I'll try and update the thread with what I have before Monday. I'm going to Portland for work training so won't be able to print anything for a week. I'm not even sure if I'll be taking my progamming laptop which has all my 3d printing stuff on it. Might just take my gaming laptop 😊

    For posterity... my MeshMixer overhang settings.
    Still needs a little tweaking, but works well for PLA.
    The small pads work well with sidewalks.

    I'm guessing you read my post too quickly and missed something.

    It's only KISSlicer that I have this problem with. Cura works great!

    Well you said if you turn off retraction in Cura then you get good prints. That made me assume that if you have retraction enabled in Cura then you have an issue.

    I'll check out kisslicer

    Sorry, I meant KISSlicer is bad without de-string, but even worse with it.

    Cura is somewhat bad with retraction (but not as bad as KISSlicer without de-string) and looks almost perfect (as far as seams) without retraction.

    Hope that's clear as mud.

    Edit:
    That Marvin I printed with Cura, I had retraction turned off. There are literally no seams on it.

    I also did a lot of online research on KISSlicer and it appears seams are a common problem. People are posting their "fixed" settings and their prints clearly have seams. They seem to think they got great results, but it is only because they are comparing it to their previous horrible prints.

    This is kisslicer with destring on. I didn't show the sides but they look good.

    That leads me to thing about filament. This was done with abs, I'm assuming your using Inland filament Don.

    Yes, Inland.

    This was done with Inland ABS with KISSlicer and de-string on after a lot of tweaking. The start corner is not perfect, but a hell of a lot better. I haven't got the PLA settings tweaked right yet.

    I believe de-string is only supposed to happen when traveling across non-printed areas, so it shouldn't affect the start/stop points. I haven't tried adjusting the Depth setting under Seam Hiding yet. Maybe that will help.
