Remove gaps in text


Recommended Posts

Posted · Remove gaps in text


Fairly new to 3D printing text on top of surfaces, I have an ender3 pro upgraded with dual z axis servo's, CR touch bed sensor and upgraded nozzle heating and sensing.

I use Ultimaker Cura V 5.1.0 to slice as it is very easy to use and seems to produce better prints than than the creality slicer.

Anyway the question I have is - How can I get rid of the annoying gaps between the walls of the text (as shown in picture)

All/Any help or idea's would be gratefully received

    try it whit the fine setting (0.06mm layer height) or increase the size of your tekst size both will work, also check mark the thin wall printing

    I don't think that the layer height has that much of an impact here. Layer width is likely what you need to fiddle with first.


    Enabling "Thin Walls" would be a good start, like dsp said.

    You could also try lowering the "Minimum Wall Line Width" value and see if that makes for a better result, since it will print small details with thinner lines and hopefully fill in some of those gaps.


    If you're not getting good enough results after testing those things you could give "Ironing" a go. If you enable Ironing and check the "Iron Only Highest Layer" box it will only Iron the text and should give you a smooth top surface.

        (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.
