Duet Wifi Wall Split
Hello. A couple months ago, I made a post of a wall split in the x direction that occurred on the perimeters of my prints. After spending a lot of time diagnosing the issue, re-flashing the firmware seemed to fix the problem. About a month ago, the wall split issue re-appeared, but in the y direction. I tried re-flashing the firmware but that did not solve the issue. I'm not to sure what is the cause of this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Here is my config:

I can't see why re-flashing would have any impact on that. It seems more like underextrusion keeping the walls from melding completely. Possibly the slicer isn't doing any gap fill since it's too close for infill but the extrusion width isn't enough to just use walls.
@phaedrux I use an extrusion width of 0.4mm. My walls are 2mm thick which the wall should be composed of 5 lines of equal thickness. There should be no infill although Simplify3D thinks that the line between the inner and outer perimeter is a "thin wall". I currently have "allow extrusion fill" checked, and a perimeter overlap of 50%.
Here is a close-up picture of the gap. The two perimeters are not touching at all with the other 3 lines. I also boosted the extrusion multiplier which did nothing at all.
I don't use Simplify3D myself, so I'm not much help with settings suggestions there, but I know that in PrusaSlicer using thin wall detection and gap fill you'd likely have no problem printing it.
@phaedrux I tried prusa slicer. Same issue but elsewhere in the part.

@tommygunz FYI for PrusaSlicer at least, two 0.4mm walls does not make a 0.8mm wall (as filament comes out with rounded edges it overlaps them). It should tell you what the wall thickness will be for a given linewidth and number of perimeters. Here's a screengrab from mine (with a 0.35mm nozzle and some non-standard line widths)
They have a knowledgebase article on it:
If you're using a 0.4mm linewidth with a 0.4mm nozzle that might give you some trouble - general advice is to have the linewidth a bit wider (e.g. 0.5mm). You use a thinner linewidth for supports when you want them to be brittle
Failing that, maybe you're printing a bit too cold so that the layers/perimeters can't bond together. Or could be you've got some mechanical backlash that means your motion isn't quite perfect (and the lines aren't overlapping enough to still bond).
