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


Recommended Posts

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

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?
