Good morning

I asked politely a question

first of all I have a Prusa i3

use the software CURA for slicer

I recently installed CURA 64-bit

and I was wondering if it is possible to print a complete filling only parts of the 3D model according to a dimensional parameter

For example I have to print a row of columns with 10mm diameter under a 100x100 floor and above a roof of 100x100

I would make sure that the columns were full 10mm diameter while floor and roof not full.

it can be done?

if so, in what way?

thank you very much

Andrew

    I think he is printing an architectural thing like a roman temple where he wants the columns 100% infill but the rest of the print only 20% infill. Is that what you want? If so you can do that in cura 2.x.x. The feature is called "merge" or something like that where you split the model up into multple parts (columns versus the rest) and then give the different parts different settings and "merge" them into one print.

    Keep in mind that 100% infill is really not much stronger than 24% infill as, like bone, the strength tends to come from the outer shell.

    If I mis understood the question please include a drawing - maybe draw on paper and photograph with your phone.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
