I am printing a model with a textured design. The prints come out with a surface dotted with random bits of PLA and some stringing when it should be that nice texture. I was told to reduce my printing temp and turn off z-hop. I know how to reduce temp (which didn't make any change other than the print failing because it warped off the bed), and I'd like to try turning off the z-hop. How do I do this?
- In PrusaSlicer or SuperSlicer, go to the Filament Settings tab
- Click Filament Overrides
- The setting you want in the screenshot is the "Lift Z" setting. Set that to zero and you have turned off z-hop.
Alternatively, if you know the start height of the top surface of your print you can change the "Only Lift Z"/"Below Z" setting to just below your top surface layers and then z-hop will be off for the surface.
