Feature request: Select alternative pattern for top and bottom layers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature request: Select alternative pattern for top and bottom layers

I just found out on one simple design, that I would have wanted to have concentric end caps on a part, but because of infill, it would have fallen in places.

I ended up using zigzag finish, and it prints fine, but lacks the visual appear that I wanted..

The perfect way for this piece would be able to use zigzag/lines on the first two or three layers on top, and then switch to concentric for the last one. Or possibility to have a single zigzag layer in between the sparse infill and concentric top.

I kind of like the earlier more, as I think the crossing lines will be more rigid end cap than the concentric one, as there is no crossing lines in concentric.

I just found out, that for bottom layer, there already is option "Bottom Pattern Initial Layer".

What I'm still missing is something like "Top Pattern Last Layer", which would be the same but for top layer.

And also this seems to have been implemented in 2.7, which I can't yet adopt because it is pending on OS upgrade.'

Thanks for the good work.
