    Looks like Z-banding. Make sure your X-axis is level.

    Here are a couple thingiverse links to items you can print out and help level your gantry:

    Welcome @ttdriver87
    Honestly, I'm not seeing any problem there? Maybe the y belt could be a bit tighter, but the surface rippling is pretty much par for the course unless you slow down the print speed or reduce the acceleration.

    Ok thank you for your comment. Do you have any facts for the acceleration? The cube was printed with 40mm/s speed.
    i think the ghosting is not normal. Here is another picture where you can see the ghosting problem.

    If you have installed the community firmware, then you can connect your printer to pronterface. Then you can both read out the current settings using M503, as well as set new settings. For setting max acceleration, you can use M201 (http://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/M201.html).

    Try halve the acceleration values, and try a reprint.

    Dont forget to save the settings to the EEPROM with M500 or the settings won’t be kept.

    Here’s a video discussing other possible factors:
