Same object in prepare and preview mode. Not sure why preview shows a lot of the text missing. Using 4.7.1. PLA

Tried both emboss and embeded but basically the same. Made w Tinkercad.

    As @nallath notes, your nozzle size/line width coupled with the layer height just can't make certain areas of the letters because they are too thin.  A different font (something san-serif?) would be a better choice.  You could make the letters larger too if that is an option for you.  You could also try enabling "Print Thin Walls" and see if that makes a difference.


    If the lettering is vertical (like on the side of a box) then beveled letters print better because the bevel angle eliminates the the need for any support.


    There are two lines of text here and both say SS Greg (I'm a modest man).  The lower wording is just too small for the .4 nozzle at .2 layer height.




    Changing to a .2 nozzle and .1 layer height allows the smaller text to print.  (This at the cost of having an 8 hour benchy.)




    Another thing you could try to to repair the model at Service.Netfabb.com.  I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, but sometimes there is and it affects how Cura slices an object.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.
