Really bumpy fluid

I’m trying to create an animation of a machine extruding a really thick fluid, however, even with the highest fluid resolution, the surface of it is really bumpy. I need it to look very smooth. Any recommendations on how to fix it?

I can provide an image if needed.

What are the settings of the collision meshes and bounding box?

There are 3 selections in one setting- no slip, partial slip and free slip. If the obstacles are on no slip or partial slip, they will stick to it (similar to honey). This may effect the fluid from completely settling.

Though I don’t have too much experience with fluids, so there may be something else which is the problem.

figured it out, had to up the smoothness value
