CURA failed to print this many times... It kept spraying filament above the bed for the inner heart after laying down the outer heart perfectly. I fiddled with settings until CURA decided to actually print the bottom layers first and the top layers next. I don't have the skills to control that myself, so I just found the right mix of settings so that it would make better slicer decisions. The one thing that fixed it was to tell it to use "skirt" for bed adhesion. I know, it just draws useless shapes around your print, but that seemed to also make it lay down the layers in a more logical way... If you jumble the inputs it makes different choices.

CURA 3.6.0
100% infill
No supports
Plate Adhesion :Skirt
0% fan for cooling see below

Printed on an Ender 3, glass bed at 60° C, Red Inland PLA+ at 209° C., 27 minutes
Note: A blizzard is spinning up. During the print the power flickered three times. I turned off the printer at the end of the print and unplugged it. So let's call that 0% fan for cooling.

Worked great, thanks!

It was a little bit hard to print this nice piece, but the issue for me was a wrong levelling calibration on one side of the heating bed. After calibration and adding build plate adhesion with a brim, the first layer stay in place.

Finally, very nice object !

Not sure what everyone else was doing to get this to print correctly, but the inner heart wasn't starting until the second layer which kept causing the print to fail.

Had to drop the z-axis position in my slicer to start the print on the second layer. I'm sure there's a way in Cura to start at a specific layer, but that's how I managed it.

I think there is a reason, that the inner starts at the 2. layer. Otherwise it couldn't slide on the paper you want to mark, or it would crumble the paper

How do you print something that starts at the second layer? It's not just going to float in the air.

I'm having trouble as well with this print...would you be willing to elaborate on just how you resolved this? I'm not seeing any 'z-axis' options within Cura to mitigate this...

Thank you,

We made 30 of these for a third grade Valentine's Day item. They were a big hit! Thanks so much! We are using the XYZ Davinci JR wireless printer. We found it easiest to just use the SD card to print from.
