  1. Hi @johnse, Your 30mm cube example with numbers really helps clarify how Cura "sees" these settings - thanks! I'd be interested in any references which provide similarly analytical explanations of the various Cura terms/settings and how they relate to each other, especially with diagrams (apologies if I missed that in the documentation). Let me apply my specific case to your example - a 30 mm cube with a 10mm cube void in the center, with 1.5mm walls. Suppose my tubular passage through the cube is 1mm in diameter. What I want is to set the walls of that tube
  2. I just found some new information that seems to agree with the example I shared. That gives me the confidence to proceed with the CAD work I need to do to prepare my actual model. I'd still like to hear about any other approaches, caveats, related settings, etc. If it's helpful, here are the references I found on this topic... I based my first attempt on this helpful video - I then played around with Cura to create the example I shared. I also went looking for related discussions and, at first, I didn't find anything of inte
  3. That sounds logical to me, but I still don't get how to then use Cura to produce the actual part I want. I have CAD models of both the cube and the tube. For the example I posted, I imported these as separate files into Cura so I could control their settings individually. Then, within Cura, I combined them using 'Merge Models'. That's the only way I know how to generate the model I posted and I want to know if there's a better way. I could certainly use my CAD software to combine the cube and tube into one part/file, and then import that into Cura. What I don't understa
  4. Hi, I'm just learning Cura and have a question about defining walls within the interior of a model. My naive approach was to do this with per-model infill settings, where one model in completely enclosed within the other and used to locally modify the infill density to 100%. This seems to work, but there are many switches and knobs available that I still don't know anything about - is there a better way? For example, the attached model is a simple cube with a tube curving through it...what's the best way to make the walls of the tube solid so as to form an interior pass
