Design Notes

I am not a fan of support material or glueing. I wanted a part to
just print. If letters are printed on the base/bottom they can be
squashed on printing the first layer. If printing from letters upwards
the backing of the letters has to be bridged (or some support material
used). If letters are printed on the top the cufflink end has little
surface area of the print bed. Also to print a backing to the letters
support material is needed).

Sideways

The letters are "sideways" as (I think) they print best that way. You
get the nice effect of the lines of the z-axis but little other
artefacts. With the other end of the cufflink giving lots of surface
area on the print bed, ideal for a small object.

Support

The model is designed so that no support material is needed. The
letters are extruded to give support at 45 degrees only where needed.
The letters still look nicely embossed.

Print settings

I print with a 0.8mm brim (twice nozzle size) and a layer height of 0.15 mm
