Cura Feature request: Infill Height ?

Posted · Cura Feature request: Infill Height ?

Hi,

I was thinking the following:

Say I have a 0.4mm nozzle and I want to print layers at 0.1mm because I want to give my print a "nice look".

This however comes at the price of print strenght, as 0.3mm layers are stronger.

So what about having an "Infill Height" value that could be set "indipendently" from the layer height?

"Indipendently" in this case would mean that it could be different from the layer height, but it would still have to be tied to it and could only be a multiple of a layer height.

So, if I decide to print at 0.1mm layer height, I could theoretically set an infill height of 0.2mm and 0.3mm and the printer would then perform the following in order:

(in case of a 0.3mm infill height)

1-print contour/walls layer at 0.1mm

2-print contour/walls layer at 0.1mm

3-print contour/walls layer at 0.1mm

4-print infill at 0.3mm

In case of a 0.2mm infill height it would be just the same with one less contour/walls layer printed.

This way the outside of the print would have the look of a 0.1mm layer print, but the inside would have the acquired strenght of a 0.3mm print.

Your thoughts? Or is this complete blasphemy? :oops:

    Thickness makes the infill layer wider, not taller.

     

    Have you read its description in Cura? Have you tried it?

    It does *exactly* what you describe.
