    Try
    - lowering the layer height
    - increasing flow rate by a few percent
    - turning the cooling fan on

    The jagged edge on the top section looks like it has to do with the material not cooling...

    Great, if you use the supports they will also work for the holes.
    The zigzag option in Cura with 12-15% covering is best for easy breakaway.
    I would design supports only for very specific cases...

    It looks like in this area there is a specific change of angle in the surface curvature so that the print comes out inconsistent. Try using a smaller layer height or an internal support structure.

    As a product designer I can recommend the Sabic Cycolac ABS, it is mechanically very well and its white is very beautiful for consumer products. I only found a few filaments that are a good white,...

    Has anyone else also noticed that with some white filaments, the uneven extrusion of different layers increases as a result of the filament flowing less well when compared to other colors?

    Yeah, in Inventor you can reduce the resolution when you click Options when exporting to STL. That controls the tessellation and often for 3D printed models low resolutions work well too, unless you...

    Hi Nick,
    I have 8 processors at your disposal, you can send me the file and if needed I can prepare it all the way for the 3D printer.
    Send me the details and I can provide you a quote.

    PP filament will be a better choice as it has a much higher glass transitioning point and is dishwasher-proof.
    I use XTC3D on the outside to waterproof things.
    Nice project!

    Hi Zeki, can you let us know how you solved the X-stepping?
    It still sometimes happens on my 3Drag machine, most likely related to nozzle bumps.

    Even with little infill, you can increase the number of top layers to, say 6-7, so the outer surface looks proper.
    20% infill is definitely recommended and will also greatly strengthen your parts....

    Or your nozzle sits too close to the printbed causing pressure buildups inside so the flow rate is very uneven.
    For PLA my flowrate setting is 103-106%.
