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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
