CURA Infill origin alias "Infill Shift"

Recommended Posts

Hi !

For a specific project, I need to print an object that fits in a volume of 210.8 x 200.2 x 195.5 mm.

For this project, I use an infill of 3% (triangles)

I need to position the fill on the axis of the object to reinforce some parts.

Problem: I can't move the object sideways to make it coincide with the infill.

Can you introduce the possibility of moving the X/Y origin of the infill?


Thank You !


(Excuse my bad "Google" English)

note : title change from "CURA Infill origin" to CURA Infill origin alias "Infill Shift"

Why not model the infill, based on the infill settings and use it as infill mesh?

So just model a triangle infill with the same settings (distances, width of walls). Add it to the plate, per model settings, infill mesh. Then just place it in the wanted position.

I have tried this with some custom infill and it works.
