Tensile strength of different forms of infill - what testing has been done?

Recommended Posts

Cura now allows one to choose between an interesting variety of infill patterns, including 3D ones.

 

Is there any evidence about the performance impact of the various approaches? The literature has quite a lot of emphasis on the impact of different raster directions, but Cura offers a choice between grids, lines, zig zags, 3D concentric, tetrahedral etc.

 

Keeping life simple, suppose I am interested in optimising tensile strength, what's the sequence I should follow to move from a relatively weak print to a relatively strong one?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
