Poor print quality since upgrading to Cura 3.2

The second photo shows the barrel of Bergerman's WW 2 Hetzer. The barrel is not smooth and is misaligned. I would appreciate any suggestion...

Newbie Question: Removing Lines

I am a complete novice and only use PLA. It seems that every model I print is riddled with lines even if I use the high-detail setting on Cura 2.6.6. Is there any way to minimize this? ALso, I only use 5% setting for support but it is very difficult to remove it regardless of the type of PLA I'm usi...

Re: Totally new to 3D printing

I went back to Cura as suggested and printed a 20mm test cube. Everything printed great except for the first few layers. The Z-axis measured 19.97, the x-axis measured 20 and the y-axis measured 19.81.

Re: Totally new to 3D printing

Thanks for the comments so far.

I tried Cura but got the same results with the PLA 2.85mm fliament. I reduced the extruder to 85% andd the problem continues.

I am continuing to experiment.

Totally new to 3D printing

I am a complete noob. I have tried several different settings but continue to have the same problem. I am using Inland filament and Simplify3D software with the LulzBot_mini_kdp_n0_nozzle_offset profile from this site. The mini is connected to a Windows 10 system with 8gb ram and an AMD A10 processo...
