I am brand spanking new to this and I thought that my first real project should be to replace my no soliciting sign that is on my mailbox. So I read some stuff and I thought I understood the process but clearly I was wrong.
So I am printing in PLA (white for background and black for lettering) and when I got to the point where I thought I should switch between white and black I paused the print in cura. I switched the colour, did an extrude to get all of the white out and then in cura pressed resume.
This is what I ended up with. I don’t know if it is clear from the picture but the black is offset by a good inch to the right.
How do I do a second colour that is lined up with the first?
Other questions that I have yet to find answers for:
- Even if I pick the material do I have to also set the temperatures in the control menu?
- Which software is easy to begin for designing my own stl files?
