  1. Thank you. However, the video shows that different infill pattern is applied to two different objects. I am saying one object. Cut an object into several sections and apply different infill patterns. Simplify3D can do that. I am wondering if Cura is able to do either.
  2. Thanks for your answer, quorneng. You said "However I for one could certainly make use different infill patterns and densities for different parts of the same object!" is it possible in cura? How? Can you explain more details?
  3. Thank you gr5. I have a question about CURA. As you know, Simplify3D allows users to apply different infill patterns to individual sections of one part. Does Cura have the same function?
  4. Thank you gr5. My focus is tool-path. What's the infill pattern? If I select zig-zag pattern and the width of plywood is bigger than nozzle diameter, tool-path would be like the right side in the figure above. I want to make the tool-path like the left side as shown in figure.
  5. Thank you for your answer. I understand the plan. If the rectangular holes are considered as cutting gap (0.01mm), what's the thickness of remaining plywood? Are they extruder nozzle diameter?
  6. gr5 thank you for your answer. I am little bit confused. If you can, could you explain it with some figures?
  7. Thanks for your answer. But there are many reports that shorts carbon fiber products exhibit anisotropic material properties depending on printing directions. If continuous fiber filaments show 100% orientation, short carbon fiber filaments show 91%, not random orientation.
  8. Thank you gr5. My goal is "to control stress direction". The material is carbon-fiber filament. I want to control fiber orientation. The only option to solve this problem is to divide section and apply different infill patterns. However, since the infill option is very limited, (eg : lines, concentric, etc). I can't design the tool-path as exactly what I want. I am currently looking for a slicer software to achieve custom infill pattern, tool-path. Any idea would be appreciated.
  9. Thanks Kcel, Can you introduce me any software tools to model custom infill?

  12. Is there any idea for infill pattern to achieve this flowing above?
  13. I am working on carbon fiber reinforced filament. I want to make my own customized infill to make the part more stiff. Default infill patterns of Cura such as "line", "zig-zag", and "concentrated" can't achieve patterns as shown in the figure below. Do you have any idea for that?
  14. I am working on spur gear. I want to divide the gear into several parts. Then, different infill patterns were applied to individual parts. Lastly, I want to merge the parts together keeping the different infill patterns Can any experts help me? I have trouble in the last step.
