How do you make raised letters solid?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How do you make raised letters solid?

I was curious as to why my raised letters didn't print well but zooming in on the sliced file shows that the letters are included in the Shell settings. Cura is trying to put 3 walls into each letter as set in the Shell section of the print settings.  This produces poor raised letters.  Is there any way to make the letters solid?  They are a solid group in the Cad file but Cura is treating them like an object subject to the print settings.  Can you block the Shell settings for selected areas of the print the way you can block support settings?  How do I make raised letters solid?

You could try enabling ironing. That should improve the quality of the top surface.
