I’m brand new to using Blender, and I’m trying to teach myself some basics to use in conjunction with 3D printing. To do that I’m trying to 3D print a plate with a logo on it. However, I’m having an issue with one single letter in the logo showing up as “negative” space after slicing the model in the 3D print software (Repetier-Host).
I’m lost on why this is happening or where in the process I’m messing up? The only thing I notice that is strange is that the shadowing for the letter in Blender looks a little different from the surrounding letters (and its more noticeable when input into the print software). In Blender and Repetier-Host that specific letter still looks extruded, even though the shadowing is strange (less shadowing, i guess), and its not until the model gets sliced does it become “negative”.
And it’s not like each letter in the logo was uploaded separately. The entire logo was a single PNG file originally and converted to a SVG file through Inkscape. So why this specific letter is behaving differently is very confusing?
And FYI…when making the file Blender file I appended the logo (previously extruded) with a plate part to create the file full part.
Anybody have any thoughts or experiences with something like this?
