Programming Infill - How ?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !!

I have been printing with the Ultimaker for about 2 months now, which seem like a small eternity to me in the good sense. This wonderful machine has gone over 200 hours of printing without big issues and I am just glad to be able to work with it. As time passes you delve deeper and deeper into the great adventure that is 3d printing and new questions arise where old ones have been solved.

A subject that has been bugging me since I first started researching 3d printing was the infill. Back then I found this article by MIT :

Now to my question, I'm just a designer, I can make a lot of stuff in CAD but when it comes to programming I am quite helpless.

How do you generate an infill pattern ?

How do you go about it when you want to use it, lets say, with Cura?

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
