Hello guys,

I am printing a fridge magnet. So this is a 25 layer height object (5mm, layer height is 0.2mm). The text starts at 16th layer (text height is 2mm).  My top/bottom thickness is 1.2mm. The infill starts at layer 7 which is after the bottom thickness which is okay yes but then as you see in the 3rd pic even though background of the text getting closed (layer 15, as it reached the top layer) but the text area is still printing as infill (yes I understand this since the top part of it still higher). But I do not want it like that, I want it be closed then I want it to start printing the text from layer 15 which is where the text actually is. Because when the extruder doing the top layer for that background thing and leaving space for text as infills, there are very visible lines appear (I think its because the extruder stops and then moves due to the text infill, I mean the momentum is breaking up). So to put in simple words how I can start printing the text from the layer 15 (walls of text and infills) I am not sure if I have explained it well 😬, hope you guys understand what I am mentioning about 😅

    Set up a mesh to use a modifier (I give a tutorial in this post) and position it so that it covers the text (from layer 15 up) except set a Top Layers setting on the modifier to a pretty high number. Doesn't matter if it's too high, it'll only affect the part covered by the mesh.
