Cura: Infill direction at 100% infill

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura: Infill direction at 100% infill



I am trying to print a part while setting a 100% infill and a chosen line direction for the infill ([0,90]).

Cura won't generate a Gcode with the chosen infill direction if the infill is set at 100%, but will do it for any other lower infill percentage.

It seems that when choosing a 100% infill, the line direction cannot be chosen...


Any tips on how to solve this ?

    Use 99.99% infill. Or 100.01.

    Or check the number of top/bottom layers and set them back to a sane amount.


    When setting infill to 100%, Cura prints everything as a bottom layer (or top, I cannot remember).
