    So ive had this problem for a while where anything I print I get these lines in certain areas of the print. I have tried everything from different types of filament even brand new stuff,ABS and PLA, Different temperatures,Different flow rates and infills,heck ive even used a different slicer and it still happening. I purchased the new Lead screw upgrades thinking it was z wobble and Im still getting the lines. Any thoughts on what could be causing it? Its making the prints almost unusable. I have check and there is no jams in the extruder. Thank for any help you can provide.

    I have the Robo R1 with now the new lead screw upgrade with the correct lead screw firmware

    Well, have you calibrated the extruder?

    Anytime I see the term "Lines in ..." I am reminded of Life in the Fast Lane co-written by Glenn Frey (Nov 06, 1948 - Jan 18, 2016), R.I.P.

    Good Call! I did it last year but I know I did some tinkering since then. I just recalibrated it was about 7MM off,so im starting a new print and see how it does. Ill report back after the print. Thanks again!

    Awesome. I hate that one since it is totally not obvious.
    It has become a go-to sort of check for me now :)
