  1. when I load the file in it shows up fine. Things to look at are: does the model fit on your build plate? even if it looks so, watch out for skirt/brim settings that extend the size. is the model too thin? play with the line width
  2. did you select a model? with nothing selected the icons are grey.
  3. play with the initial layer thickness until the letters show in the first layer. There is also another little trick: print the first layer thin with the letters, pause the print, change the colour and resume the print. In your case I would start with one thin layer with the letters and stop the print, change the colour, change the first layer thickness to a solid first layer and print over the first layer. Info from an old topic:
  4. set the 'initial layer height' to 0.3, then the next layer will be solid.
  5. Mesmixer is my favorite way to go. It is free and there are enough tutorials available to learn its basics.
  6. did you try the little wheel icon next to the 'Experimental' tab to show all the settings visibility? Or under Preferences -> settings to check all the needed boxes? Or simply type 'fuzzy' in the search settings (fastest option)
  7. what is the function of the three posts in the print?
  8. when you use ->preferences-> multiple build plates, a little window down left appears, where the numbers are visible and clickable. It seams to be a bit of a forgotten, unfinished, but handy feature.... you can click an item in the list and the model lights up, but if you click a model it is not highlighted in the list.. And you cannot drag the window, it is overlapping with the model text
  9. Just an idea: can you check if your fan at the bottom is running? I have seen something like this before, loosing steps in the first few layers, a wire of the fan broke off.
  10. is it intended that the topic name disappeared from each post (light grey, behind the date)? this was very useful with long topics...
  11. important is to scale the shape, whatever shape you want, to the same height as the initial layer. I have a folder with some basic shapes, cilinder, cube, and bring them in multiply and scale them to my liking.
  12. I tested your setup, Cura 4.0 beta: I disabled all wall, top and bottom, only infill (100%, lines, direction 90 degrees) set the infill line width to 0.8 (0.8 nozzle) and counted 15 lines. No idea what the measure is of the printed part, due to flattening of the plastic... I think the best way to get your measurement is to play with the line with values.
  13. ...and.... you can also make your own modified 'brim'. Place a normal cube or cylinder on the bed and adjust the size and height, make the height the same as the first layer and move them to the end of your tubing. They will act as 'Mickey Mouse ears' to hold your model to the glass, without the trouble of removing a complete brim, only remove the ears at the ends. (in the preferences disable 'keep models apart')
  14. no, the nozzle doesn't get damaged. Just clean it if there is crap on it. Brim is a good idea, the model itself has very little to stick to the glass. Is the inside of the good end what you want?
