    When you can share the object or even better the Cura project (3mf file) then we can take a look what happens. But you said it is a special design or something you paid for, so I don't know if you can share it here.

    There is something wrong with the file, it has 0 byte.

    Can you check it and upload it again please.

    Thanks, at first glance, I can't see why it wouldn't work. The tips will certainly not be beautiful I think, but I don't see any problem with the text.

     

    Do you have photos of your failed prints?

    Hi Jockcraw,

    I don't know which printer you use, but relating to Cura preview for an UM3, the design itself definitely should be printable, even with standard .4 nozzle and 2.0 (and better) layer hight.

    Perhaps your printer and/or Cura settings are not optimal (but I guess Smithy can help you when he sees the photos).

    Regards

    I'll toss it on my S5 when I get home tonight, the file looks easy to print

    I printed one bone stock if I took the time to dial the settings it would be better or even printed it on my .25 (next time I'll turn off brim)

    If you send me your address and you are in the USA I'll just mail you that one, not like I need it, if you want to print it on a S5 here is my suggestions all default for my S5 with Um PLA on 4.4.1 of Cura if you want a better version see below

     

    I did not open your project I imported your models

    .025 Nozzle

    Adhesion off

    Layer .1

    Printing temp initial layer I would drop down to 185

    Printing temp I would drop to 188

    Bed temp of 52 (No higher) (Use glue stick if you have to)

    Top layers I would bump up you can see them a tiny bit in the model
