Looking for tips on how to do this

Posted · Looking for tips on how to do this

I have a photo (see below) of something pretty simple that I would like to create a 3D print of.

I tried importing into Cura (see below), and think it would work.

Is there another way on making this happen? Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

P

    also...I would love to maybe have the letters stick out instead of be carved in as current.

    is there a way to make the body in red and letters in white using the U2+?

    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.

    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?
