Seems to be a cura problem... Still not sure why these are happening though. The wall is 3mm thick with 2 wall line count. Ive tried adjusted my line widths, amount of walls, my wall speeds, flow equilzation ratio, wall accelerations/jerk. None of those settings seem to have any effect on making the flow in those areas consistent with the rest of the outer wall.

    The issue turned out to be my "Overhang wall speed" and "Overhang wall angle." I had them set to 50 degrees at 50% and the letters had small overhangs that the printer was adjusting the speed and therefore the flow. When I set those values to 90 degrees at 100% the flow changes went away.

        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
