Layer lines and patterns wanted!!

Hi all

I hope someone can help me! I am an artist and I wish to print some shapes with layer lines that I can see, and planes with patterns on the surface. I have delicate surface patterns but would like these, and the layer lines to be bigger. Can anyone help me how to do this please? I use a prusa mk3 thank you so much!

For bigger layer lines use a bigger nozzle but the limit with your Mk3 will be about 0.6mm with a 0.8mm nozzle; if you want larger simulate them with a ribbed design.

By surface pattern I presume you mean some sort of bas relief, simply define the depth required in your CAD software, to keep it clean restrict it to a multiple of the layer height; with 0.2mm layers use 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and so on.
