I have the Qidi X-one2 & use Hatchbox PLA 1.75mm filament. When printing with the default settings, my prints often have lines or indentions streaked across where the nozzle leaves a line to head over to another area. I tried to alter the settings & enable retraction/z-hop among a few other tweaks & I get lots of stringing. With default settings, I had no cleanup, but lines… and with new settings, I have lots of cleanup and less lines (still have the occasional ones on the bottom of the print).

Any idea on how to get a smooth top/bottom layer (no defects/lines) and minimal/no stringing for easy/no cleanup? I have been trying to tweak things like crazy to fix this. Thanks!
