  1. Yes, people have tested printing planes out of it, but with partial success : The printed parts are light, but obviously not as stiff as the original PLA the planes were designed for. For some, it ended in flutter and ultimately a crash. Thanks, but this post is about PA-CF... ๐Ÿคจ I'll look a bit further though. Thanks for your involvement ! Fingers crossed (expect typos)
  2. I was testing your release, and that's the conclusion I came up to ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, I'm not familiar with software development. What's the future for these new features ? Will they be integrated in the next official Cura revision ? Sounds too easy ...
  3. You're the man ! Downloading now ... It has a real technical purpose : it will help 3D printed RC planes designers save a few precious grams on each wing section.
  4. Awesome, I didn't expect to see results so quickly ! Thanks very much ๐Ÿ™‚ I've downloaded your build, I'll give it a try soon. About Z-scaling, does the attached picture help ?
  5. Thanks for your answer ! If you take a cube filled with gyroid, its side would look like the attached image. On the left, a regular gyroid infill On the right, the Z-scaled infill => XY period stays the same, and the infill is stretched in the Z direction..
  6. Hi guys ! First, thanks for developping CURA. I've been using it for over a year now with my Anycubic i3 Mega, with great success. I'm currently designing a 3D printed RC airplane, and I have found that the Gyroid Infill gives promising results for creating strong yet lightweight wing sections. It could almost be used as is, but to make it perfect, and make us plane designer definitely quit time-consuming custom-drawn infill structure, we would need the following features : ability to set XY offset of the gyroid infill ability to rotate the gyroid infill in reference to the machine XY axis ability to scale the infill in the Z direction, as we need the stiffness most along the wingspan Could that be part of a future release ?
