What layer inconsistencies? Not that I'm claiming there aren't any, but interested to understand what aspects, blobs/zits, alignment etc? The original experimental profile didn't use z-lift and my resultant prints are comparable except that I'd say my most recent black and red cone doesn't have the scars from my change to the retraction settings (it's better). I don't get any oozing at all using the technique in the profile. Once I've re-calibrated my offsets/hotend levels then I think the profile (for me..!) is perfect.
