As you can see the place the nozzle starts leaves a very nasty line, anyone an idea on how to minimize this?
These are my settings:

Start with simple calibration squares to set all the basic parameters:

You don't need to use my squares, but you should start with a thinwall square, not a complex object. The process I wrote up (below all the pix) covers all the parameters you'll adjust.

An earlier rant on why you (well, I) always start with squares:

After you calibrate everything, then print that sphere again to see what's improved!

I actually did a lot with the single wall square and some with the extrusion squares. but my question is more basic.
I dont know which parameters to change here, whatever I change there seems to be no significant change.

I have seen the guide but none of the issues listed is comparable. I want to make the start stop position blob smaller.
