Looking for tips on how to do this

Recommended Posts

What you can do it make 2 stl"s one with the lettering the other the main body.

The lettering just make it 1 layer thick and you print that on the glass. then you change the material and print over top of the lettering with your body stl.


Thanks. I have lots to learn! No idea how to do this...and didnt know you can change the material in the middle of the job

You can pause the printer and select change material. But my suggestion earlier is by actually printing 2 jobs. You just keep the first job in place, then select print and print the 2nd job over top.


ahaaa...so in Cura I would need to design two things over each other and then delete the bottom part and only save the letters...then it will start print where it should, right?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
