Thank you for your experience feedback. basically, I do not design specifically to be printable. The only thing I can offer you is a model with letters that are a bit bigger than the original one. (Stl File: Big Letters) In addition, you could scale the model larger. It works with Cura.
I think also 0.3mm is a fairly large layer thickness.

Well I tried. The small size of the letters on that pretty steep incline didn't work on my Replicator 2x freshly calibrated too :(. Printed at .30 layer height. Maybe finer settings would work better, but I've found that text usually prints better at lower resolution IMHO. If you're looking to improve it, I'd go with (bigger) inset letters, they print better. Thanks for the upload though!

no I do not print, if you worry about the bottom, try the stl. file "filled podestal"

Have you printed this? does it work okay?
