Just picked up a Taz 6 and have been using Benchy (the little test print boat) to hone my initial layers. If you’ve seen this file, you know it has a little bit of embossed text on the bottom. I was using that to determine how much “squish” I had.
I printed a jaunty little boat but noticed there wasn’t any text on the bottom. I thought, I’ve got a lot of squish! It wasn’t until I popped over to the layer view that I noticed Cura wasn’t even trying to print that text.
It was then I discovered that if I pick XT (colorFabb) / Standard, it will plan a path for the text. If I pick the High Detail quickprint, the text goes away again.
Sure enough, if I go into expert settings an set my layer height to .18, the text vanishes, but it comes back with a layer height of 0.25 or greater.
This is counter intuitive to how I think this works. How do I get the text to slice with .18mm layers? What am I doing wrong?
