Printing with cura

Post by Armourlee » December 31st, 2018, 10:25 pm

Hello all, I’m newer to this and have been messing around with different settings on cura printing accordingly. I am having some trouble printing a name plate. I created it on Tinkercad. Just a block that I flattened down to 14 inches long and 3 inches tall. 3 layers on bottom are vertical, horizontal, vertical than 20% I fill until top 3 layers. This is where my trouble is. It’s supposed to be the nameplate with writing on top of it (when the nameplate is finished with the top layer, I would think that the writing would start on top). However, for some reason the writing begins on the nameplate during the last 1-2 layers of infil and then the print head goes back and tries to do the last 3 smooth layers around the writing on the nameplate. I’ll attach some photos as well. Thank you and hopefully I can get some clarity on this.
