Posted · problems with infill and support

Hi all

 

I am trying to print this microphone shock mount (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:44425).

I have printed it once succesfully, but I found it a little too light to use (specially the 'foot' and I would like to have some more 'infill' to make it denser; more compact and hence stronger. 

 

 

I adjusted in Cura the infill to 40% (instead of 20%), but this doesn't seem to change (because the inside does not look like being filled for 40%). (And I reduced support print speed to 30).

 

Or do I have to change another parameter ? 

I also noted that the 'infill' consists of small 'walls', but because they are so thin, the nozzle pushes them flat, and then stringing appears. This happens also with the thin supports (consisting of white filamanet) surrounding the ring. 

 

So my main question is: how do I change the 'infill' ... or can't I ?

 

Kind regards

Diederik
