How to setup different fillings on a model?


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to setup different fillings on a model?


i get a model from my friend to print. Hi draw that with the CAD software AutoCAD. In Cura 2.4.0 also in (2.3.1) the bolts,

here a picture,


are not filled with material. These are two separate tubes. The Top layer is OK, and close the tubes correctly. When i use a screw, the bolts break. I also can not drill out.

Is there a way to have some parts of the model full filled?

    What settings are you using for infill and wall thickness? Can you post a picture of your Cura settings?

    Wouldn't call myself an expert yet, so don't know if setting fill percentages per area of the model, so maybe someone else can jump in here?

    Thats cool, I tried that. For some cylinder that trick is working bat not for all cylinders. This may be dependent on the inner diameter of the cylinder. ;)

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
