Lines from the stl file disappear after slicing

Hi I'm trying to print a logo. It looks fine in Prusa Slicer, but when I hit the slice button to get the code, the interior lines disappear, and it prints only the perimeter. I'm new to 3d printing and cannot figure out why this is happening. Any suggestions 

Thanks

Hi Dinesh, 

i expect you are using the stock 0.4mm nozzle on your extruder.

Prusa Slicer is set to print certain extrusion widths


if your line is thinner than this width, the slicer will ignore it

can you check the line width? it may be too thin

regards Joan

Thank you so much Joan. Indeed the lines were too thin. I made them thicker and it printed just fine!

Cheers

If you have the CAD file, I would suggest making the lines 0.8mm wide.  This would print with two lines that in theory would be 4X stronger.
