Can you write text on flat surface (hotplate side)

Post by DemonDNF » Sat Jan 11, 2020 12:27 pm

Hi, I'm looking at the A20M on amazon and wanted to know if this printer can print fine text within the "top" finished surface. My goal is to print a part with incriptions on it; similar to text on a remote, television, radio or other devices.

Has anyone achieved this? Any pictures?

Is there a sample print that does this function to help calibration?

My plan is to write at least nozzle width (.04).

Use laser with appropriate material coating, not 3D printer.
A10M Slic3r profile: here and fresh on github (lot of tips here)

TIP: tight all screws and wheels (except right side of Z axis) and re-align frame while assembly. And silence it.
