change the density of the infill during the print on cura

Posted (edited) · change the density of the infill during the print on cura

Hi I am using CR-10 at the moment. A beginner. Tried to use Cura to set a particular infill for only a part of a model. Simply3D can use variable setting wizard, has Cura got something like that? I know there is per object setting, but I have to create many objects from one model. Or the swapatZ plugin? Thanks

    This plugin is no longer bundled with Cura. Is there anyway to get it in there?


    Yes it is, see Extensions -> Pos processing -> Modify G-code

    Ok, it is named "ChangeAtZ" now, but it has the same functionality that "TweakAtZ" had.

    Having said that, neither TweakAtZ nor ChangeAtZ can change infill parameters.


    Instead, use an additional mesh to modify the infill settings using per model settings.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
