    I have no idea whats causing this! HELP

    Having a little trouble with my 3D printer, Its a Makerbot Replicator 2 and i haven't really had loads of time using however i'm not new to 3D printing either. I'm currently trying to print a simple sphere however im having issues with one side. Ive included pictures and as you can see one side is incredibly rough and choppy whereas the other side is perfectly smooth. I have tried everything software related to try and solve the problem and I've also leveled the bed numerous times, blocked off the sides of the printer to combat any draft and messed around with the print settings but i am having no luck. If anyone has any suggestions as to what it may be please let me know. Thanks in advance for any help!

    I would try a couple of things;
    1.Try tightening the belts or re-aligning the gantry
    2. Clean out your nozzle. Particles in there can make the filament come out a weird angle.

    I wounder if one is being hit by the active cooling fan (the duct down the side). Inconsistency in that air could be causing the layers to cool at different rates.

      I am no expert at this, but it looks like ringing in the z-axis rod. I would make sure everything in that area is tight. Also, they sell little cushions for about $5 that are made to get rid of noise & stuff on stepper motors. Sounds like something is lose. Good Luck!

        The trouble is probably due to some ineffective 3D printing setting or some loose screw etc. Besides, troubles with the nozzles can also cause some unwanted marks on the 3D printed objects.
        Though the marks do not appear so disdainful, you can firstly check your 3D printer and ensure good settings. Secondly, you can use some refinishing jobs to offer the 3D printed objects a great appearance.
