Hi All


Using the following;


Win 10 PC,

Cura 5.2.1,

Matter Control to create object.


I am trying to create a sign with a front and back face.  The text is a copy of the other, copy & paste, so it has the same font, spacing and size configuration.  The bottom side the text is mirrored and the top side normal.  When I slice the project as you can see in the pictures attached the bottom side text has some extra lines (in light blue) within the embossed/subtracted area.  This is not seen in the top side text?


I am new to printing so the error that was displayed doesn't mean much to me in fixing the problem.


I have attached a copy of my STL file, top side, bottom and closeup of bottom side, any comments greatly appreciated.


Thanks all.

    The blue lines here a brim lines. This happens because these letters have an "island" inside them, and Cura gets a little confused about what is the inside and what is the outside of the first layer.


    Since this print is very round, you could try printing it with a skirt instead of a brim.

      • 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
