Top/ Bottom layers inside object

Recommended Posts

Posted · Top/ Bottom layers inside object

Hi all,


I am trying to optimize the print of a simple 3" x 1" equipment label. These labels are embossed with the equipment identifier, for example, HV2390-20 is the current tag I am working on. The issue is that I would like the print to be much faster, but the slicer is wasting time by drawing out the equipment label beneath a fully solid layer. See the images attached for an example. Ideally, I would like to keep 3 solid layers on top and bottom, but remove the time consuming portion by making the inside of tag entirely infil with no pattern, as on layer 11. I have to print literally hundreds of these tags, so any time savings is worth it.


Any help is very much appreciated!

    For prosperity, I found the answer. By increasing the skin removal distance to a value greater than the width of the lettering, the skins internal to the object were removed.
