Seam at revolve

john_petty368john_petty368 Member Posts: 2
So I take my models from onshape to 3d print.  My model is a circle and for some reason I get a seam.  It doesn't show on the model so I am not sure if this is something to do with the onshape model or how it gets sliced in my slicing program.  Has anyone ran into this?

    Is the seam actually because your slicing parameters are set to always start and stop perimeters in the same place?  You can change the slicing setting to pick a random start and stop perimeter location which can remove that seamed look.  I actually prefer the seamed look because I find everywhere there is no seam, looks really good.  With a random start and stop, I find the whole surface looks a bit more shaggy.
