Hoping someone can provide some insight into an "issue" I am having with how I am currently slicing one of the projects I am working on. It's not as issue with the software (as it's doing exactly what I am telling it to do) but more with I don't know how to tell it to do what I want.
I'm trying to print an object that as an "engraving" on the top layer. It's a .4mm (layer height of .2mm) tracing of text from the top down of the object. The issue occurs where I tell the slicer to have 3 top layers, and since the text is technically missing at the very two top layers, it makes up for it by placing filler below the rest of my layers.
As you may think this causes some problems as there is really no support for the majority of that infill and the nozzle just lays material in and has the tendency to glob up and ruin the quality of my top layers.
The question being, is there a way to prevent this? Is it possible to limit the top layers to somewhere above a certain height or something? This may be a common question but I can't seem to find anything discussing this with a quick google search.
Thank you in advance!
