Posted · Settings for printing small text

Hi All, I am just starting of in 3d printing. I have a monoprice select mini and barring the small bed size I am really stoked with it for the price. I designed a stamp in Tinkercad, did a make solid in Mesh mixer. I have changed the machine setting for a nozzle to 0.3 to accomodate the font. The model is oval at a height of 17mm. the font is about 3mm raised. I started by using a layer height of 0.088 , single wall, nozzle 195, bed 55, print thin wall enabled, speed 20mm/s with the model lying face up. This was the base setting..I have tried to play with a myriad of settings based on what I am reading but on slicing the font face always gets messed up. Even when I increase the model size to 200 % the results are not spot on. Can someone tell me what exactly if anything can be done or is it just that the walls being so thing, a high resolution print is not achievable. Would appreciate some reasoning behind any suggestions please. Thanks in advance for reading. The font is Lucida Calligraphy bolded. Here is the stl

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
