Infill errors?

Recommended Posts

hello world!

I have some problems with the infill. I attached a foto, where you can see, that the infill has little squares in it.

Does anybody know what that is and how i get that away and/or what causes that?

Thanks for a reply!

Benedikt.

The blue lines are support structure to support the gap between the build plate and where the part starts.

The yellow squares are caused by infill not set at 100%. Most parts don't need more than 10% infill as most of the strength comes from the walls.

Hej gr5,

thanks for the reply!

But i don´t ment the lines of the support and the infill structure. I ment in the blue lines there are some parts that do not belong to the straigt lines! Do you see what i mean? how do they come?

I don't understand. I think you should add an arrow to the photo. And also post a photo of the model in "normal view" but shown from below the bed. Looking up at the bottom of the part from below.

I have to correct. No this "things" do not correspond to upper parts!

an by the way thanks for the reply!

Oh now i loaded it new for the picture, and see... a wonderfull new structure!!!5a33118a2e1dd_Bildschirmfoto2015-09-25um19_15_15.thumb.png.2b7f8cb529d767d5d950ff43bcf93520.png[/media]

the surface is totally even, modelled in rhino 5 mac.

Those picutres are helpful!

The blue lines are what is called "support structure". There may be a bug in where it places support but it looks fine to me. The support only goes under overhangs of a certain angle and the outer edge is "vertical enough" such that it's not sure if it needs it or not - right on the edge - that creates that funny patern. But the blue part should hold up the rest - the layer view doesn't always display support structure well in this latest version of cura but it looks fine in the screen shots you showed me.

If you check where the "blue squares" or "support structure" ends vertically it should just almost touch the actual part. If not you might want to turn off brim. Or if you don't want any support then leave brim on and turn off "support" to "none" instead.

hej gr5!

Thanks for the reply!

i understand everything about support structure and infill and i checked, there is no errors in the model. It was just, the errors in the supportstructure where in a not so good positon and i wanted to know if i can smooth them or even get rid of them.

Have you considered flipping this part over? I can't see the whole part but it looks to me like it would print much better if you flipped it over. You would only have to support that small rim.

Also I explained why those areas have strange looking support already. Maybe you should start over and read all the posts?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
