Ultimaker 2+ not printing embossed text

Hello everyone,

I created a simple design on Fusion 360 that has an embossed image (leaf) and also an embossed text , both on the same surface.

Whole design is shown perfectly on Cura before slicing and printing. However, the printer doesn't print the embossed text. Is there a reason for that? could it be that it's too small?

Thank you

E.

    I only have a few seconds but yes it could be too small.  Is the text thicker than one layer height?  Obviously it needs to be at least that.  Also maybe it's too thin - try checking "print thin walls".  Try setting line width to 0.1 as a quick experiment.

    "print thin walls" worked for your project that you posted.

     

    Note that having the letters stick inwards will have a better quality/readable text but this looks like a stamp so I don't think that's an option.

     

    Also if you print them on a vertical wall (make the stamp square and print vertically) that usually increases quality but only I suppose if it sticks out just a tiny bit (0.3mm).  So assuming this is a stamp then just check "print thin walls" and you will be all set.

    It worked! However like you said, it looks quite unreadable. I'll try to stick it inwards see if it looks better. Thanks again!

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
