help?? I am creating a 3d nametag for our kids program. i typed my name in SNAP font, and put it on a splat background. I printed it with green for the background and changed the filament at the text layer, and it came out ok. My wife thinks I need to outline the text with black as the second filament and then do the text in white as a third layer.
This IS what I am looking for, as long as what the video colored black can be "push"ed down to a different height, so when I print, i can change filaments to create the same effect…
Thank you, I will try.
Sorry Dave, but I am VERY new to this 3d stuff. I used Sketch-Up for wood working years ago, but i started again when the museum I work at bought a 3d printer and asked me to TEACH kids how to use it. I was a Pastor of Children’s Ministry for three decades, so not super tech savvy… Therefor as a complete Noob, what do you mean Eneroth auto weld??? is it different than the default weld in left click? why? Is it worth the $10 to get? What are you recommending me to do to the text?
It’s an extension. Much faster than the native Weld and will go through the selected geometry and weld any edges that can be welded. I use it enough to think it’s worth the price. It will ensure that you can select entire loops of edges as in my GIF.
I was suggesting you might want to offset around openings as in the A here.
This is what I want to print. Thank you for your help. I did not realize the native offset tool was there or what it did. when you and the other person said offset, I went to extensions… again, my mistake.
When I do the print, the lifted offset will be with a black filament, so highlighting the white text.
Again, your guidance was a big help.
