How to design laterally increasing infills

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to design laterally increasing infills


Is it possible to print a model wherein different fill ratios in the same layer. I need to print a laterally increasing fill ratio for my model (say from 50% infill to 80% infill) in the same layer. Is there any software for designing such a model?

Thanks in advance

There is no easy way to do this that i'm aware of.

The hard way is to divide the object into parts, give them per object settings and group them. You can do this with the new Cura.

      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.
