XYZmaker print of a script type font very pixelated

Postby jay » Sun Mar 18, 2018 10:59 am

New to 3-D printing. I just got a da vinci mini and am getting some pretty good results. However, I want to print letters from a script font and the letters are very pixelated. I am using XYZmaker. Any tips on how to smooth out the letters?

Thanks

Can you make the text ten times larger, then scale it down? This should reduce the pixels. Haven't used xyzmaker lately to tell you if it will work. Post back and let me know if it does.

OTF and TTF fonts work fine in Maker. Postscript can be buggy or not work at all. Interpolation as mentioned in the other reply by a member is another way to make a better print.

Most script fonts are very thin so that may also be an issue.
