I've been meaning to get around to incorporating text into 3D printed models for awhile. I did a few experiments in the past but they didn't work out, the text being too small, and recessed. My research afterwards indicated that raised text is easier to print. I wanted to see if anyone could verify that. Also, what size do letters have to be to print legibly and consistently?
The reason I'm asking is because I'm wanting to create a set of models where the OOB information is printed right on the model. This would let people avoid the trouble of labeling units. This would also let me get one step closer to bridging the gap between models and hex-and-counter games. But the text size is the limiting factor here.
