Cura: Travel movement, and infill within wall

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura: Travel movement, and infill within wall

Hi,

I've had this issue for a while and been living with since (see attachment), but this time it's not acceptable because I know I can print much faster based on my experience.

I want to get ridd of those travel movement (in blue) and infill (yellow) within the solid external perimeter. I've been playing with the resolution, layer perimeter and density, but did not get good results.

Even changing the model STL, making more or less polygons was not a solution for that.

Is there any plugin, or any other solution I can do to avoid that? Pretty sure my parts can be printed in 15-18 hours if not for the hindering travel and un-needed infill.

Alternative link for the picture can be found here which has higher quality.

A quick hack would be to set your nozzle diameter to 0.5 to get 2mm walls. I don't see which printer you are using, an UM should be able to overextrude even more.

Another hack:

you could try to set the Shell thickness to something like 2.1 - even if this is not a multipe of your nozzle-size.

For me this worked in many cases and reduces the print-time very well ...
