Hello Lulzbot community!
I just picked up the last AO-101 they had in stock as my second 3D printer after a Makerbot Rep 2X, which I was not happy with initially but now I have working pretty well.
Anyways, I need some help with generating the proper gcode files to cut a very particular thing: letters. The letters range in width from 1mm-2mm and don’t need them to be solid, but I do need them to be capped. The problem I’m getting is inconsistent widths as well as no caps on some of the letters. Here is an idea of what I’m looking for vs what is happening:
I will admit this is my first foray into slic3r / gcode / etc, so I am not sure where to start and what to tweak. I have gotten some advice from lulzbot support, but it didn’t help too much, so I thought I’d open it up to the community and see if anyone possible knows of a good fix for it—I know it is possible to achieve what I am looking for, just not sure how.
I’ve also attached an STL file if someone would like to play around with it and see if they can get it to slice right. Any help or advice to get me started would be great.
