Update needed on Infill Patterns

Recommended Posts

This issue matters to me as I'm trying to test the impact of assorted print variants. One variation we want to test is on differing infill patters.


As far as I can see the most recent details of what the various infill patterns consist of is on https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/20416-infill .


These are now outdated, The options in 3.3.1. are more numerous and at least one of the older names (tetrahedral) has disappeared.


Where can I find an updated explanation of the various infill patterns? ..... and which of these patterns should give strongest tensile strength?
