    I think the letters are just too small resulting in the printer being unable to slice it. Could you try what happens if you set it on a 0,25 nozzle?

    now is working is showing good

    I mean change the printcore to 0,25 not the layerheight. Could you maybe share your model. Then I can check myself.

    I have a anycubic i3 mega s. i change to 0.25 nozzle and  looks like is working

    You can also enable the feature "print thin walls".  That gets you closer.  You might be able to stay with 0.4mm line width if you check that box in cura.


    Printing .25mm lines (line width) through a 0.4mm nozzle will reduce the quality.  You should play with line widths such that you have the largest possible.  .35mm line width will be pretty much indistinguishable quality.  0.3 will be better quality than 0.25 for a 0.4mm nozzle.  And so on.


    Another option is instead of making the letters stick *up*, make them stick down into the model.  This way it won't matter if the nozzle is thicker than the line width.


    Or make your font a little bolder.
