    Although this doesn't lead to any jobs getting rejected, I am curious to find out if there is a simple fix for this type of banding. It's not very noticable from a distance of more than a couple feet, but it just bugs me.

    It is an 8 pass profile, and I've noticed it across a variety of material.

    When I use 12+pass profiles, I don't really get this problem.

    Machine is a vs 640.

    Boxes which have been checked;
    [x] feed calibration
    [x] heater settings

    I notice it more on some colours than others. Here you can see it is doing it on the yellow/orange. I have noticed it does it with red colours also. I have not seen it much with other colours, so am guessing that it's a magenta thing.

    Any ideas, I'd be interested in hearing.

    If the feed calibration is ok, then you might try to slow down the print-head speed from versa works. This should help.
    Also, try to change the ICC profile you're using or some color management settings.

    Thanks Gabriel. I make my own colour profiles, and it happens on all of them for whatever material I use. I'm just experimenting right now, and although my feed calibration setting was correct according to the test print, I made the adjustment to 'overlap' a little, and it's actually becoming less noticable. I am now printing on -0.30 and it has become less noticable. I'll try slowing it down as well. Thanks.
