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.
