Make Cura "forget" the toplayers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Make Cura "forget" the toplayers

Hoi All,

Still optimizing print time. So again a Cura matter:

is it possible to make Cura forget to close the box with a top layer, so that the upperside of the box shows the infill and does not get a top layer?

Yes, i know, i can abort printing at the right time to get the desired results. But when printing multiple objects (one after the other), that is not an option.

Thanks again.

15.09.-- you can set top layers to 0

This simple change set printing time back from 19 hours to less than 11 hours. Same quality.

Great. Thanks again.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
