Cura: printing without shell or infill only?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm also interested in a infill-only print. Setting the wall line count and the others to 0 kind of does it but not really.

The infill close to the perimeter it's a lot more complex/different than the object's inside infill. I'd like an homogeneous infill-only object...

Any help welcome!

You need to use an infill that doesn't connect the ends of the infill lines where they meet the shell. There are settings to enable that feature.

Thanks, I imported that profile. When I slice your model I get this which doesn't have any explicit lines between the ends of the infill but it is doing non-retract moves (dark blue) so you are probably getting stringing:

If you disable the combing you will get retraction with the moves (light blue lines) and so should not get stringing between the ends of the infill lines:

Hope this helps!

    • "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.
