Layer Interrupted By Overlying Text


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Layer Interrupted By Overlying Text

On slices 72-75, the layers are interrupted by three separate areas where overlying text will be printed in higher slices. Why is this? Please help. I use Ultimaker Cura as slicer and Creality Ender 3 as printer with PLA. Thanks.

    I think Cura is laying in the base of the letters as they are a "top surface".  Generally those would cover the area of all the lettering but there must be a couple points in the model where the letters are cut a bit deeper.  The next layer up should show those smears around all of the lettering.
