Text is not slicing in cura, but works when scaling.

Posted (edited) · Text is not slicing in cura, but works when scaling.

Hello Everyone,

 

I am trying to print an .stl created in fusion 360 with text engraved.

When i am slicing the model, the text is dissapearing if i don't scale the model as preferred.

 

If i scale the object to 99% or 101%, the text will appear in the sliced object.

Is there anyone with a possible solution? 

 

I've tried it in cura 4.6 & 4.7.

    Offcourse, i have attached the .stl.

    I was trying to slice and print multiple 'eggies' numbers 17 till 32 but all the stl files do have the same problem.

     

    Some additional information:
    Print layer height 0.15

    The text is .2 deep. So it is only printed in 1 layer at the top and the bottom.

     

    The strange thing is that the text is sliced in the bottom, and not in the top. It is the same text and dept, but only mirrored to the top.

    Thanks for the file, for me it slices as expected with layer height 0.15. There is a setting called slicing tolerance that could influence the results you get so it may be worth playing with that. I always have that set to "middle".

    Thanks for your help @burtoogle

     

    In my settings the slicing tollerance was already set to 'middle'.

     

    I have changed my initial layer height to 0.25 (because i can see that yours is on 0.15 instead of 0.27 in my settings), and that fixed the problem.

     

    In my opionion a strange solution, because the text depth (0,2mm) is still more than the thickness of the last layer (0,15mm). Hopefully this is a once in a liftime bug that will not appear to other people and their models 😉
