Strange stripes


I would like to print this object but when I print it the shade of the surface almost always has a visible difference between the sides and the center:


Although the difference is almost always visible it does not always aligns with the geometry changes.
I've attached the setting of the printer. Arm_0.3mm_PLA_MK3S_1h21m
Does anybody have any idea why  there are these differences?

RE: Strange stripes

You are likely seeing the effect of small variation in speed between thick & thin parts. Try lowering your external perimeter speed (I use 20-25mm/s) for a more consistent external finish.
