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?
