What could be causing this wavy pattern

Belts are pretty tight
Acceleration set to 800
Jerk set to 7
TMC2208 drivers for xyz
LVG8729 for extruder

Not sure what else I can do. Halp!

Re: Das filament thermo red filament prints white

Re: Smoking Mosfet

Had the same issue with ramps and another HB. The mosfet is just not up to the task. I needed to replace it with a better one. If you change the duty cycle you will increase the heating time.

At first I thought this is retraction issue, but I haven't changed the retraction settings and it was printing fine before the switch to drv8825 from A4988. What think ...

Inner diameter prints to small, outer to big.

This is what I printed: https://i.imgur.com/69xbi5t.jpg This is what I got: https://i.imgur.com/H4uXrG2.jpg How am I suppose to calibrate this?

Is everyone around me an actor¿

Sometimes it feels like my life is a social experiment for aliens. Everybody around me seem to act in a predictable manner which I can't find a logical reason for it.

How likely is it that nothing around me is real¿

Re: Why does this happen

Thank you for your response. It can start with the first inner layer and loop around three times to print all layers from inner to outer, this would leave the best surface finish I think. However, as you can see in the video, it starts with the first inner layer, loops twice and moves to a different...
