Cura infill wall thickness

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm using Cura 2.6.1 on Windows.

Is there a way to adjust the thickness of infill walls? I'm printing in Nylon, which works beautifully on the shell, but the infill is apparently configured for a different thickness, because it stretches the nylon too thin, causing it to break, leaving gaps in the infill. I wish it would print the infill exactly the same as the shell (same speed, same extrusion flow, same wall thickness) but I can't find a setting to adjust this.

Thanks for any advice!

Speed -> Infill Speed

Set this value to the same as Speed -> Outer Wall Speed

Infill Speed usually defaults to twice as fast as Outer Wall Speed, as a result you can get under-extrusions on infill if its printing too fast.

If that fixes your issues, you can try increasing the Infill Speed until you get a good balance of speed v. quality.

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.
