Cant remember what the setting is called

Recommended Posts

i believe there is a setting where you can add a full layer every xxx layers


so say you ahve 20% infill, it prints the bottom layer, then does infill, then say 50 layers in, it will print another bottom layer


i believe i saw this setting, but i cant remember what it is called.


any help?

It's possible to do this if you add a cuboid stl file that envelops these layers where you want a different infill setting.  but if you want to do this more than 3 or so times it starts to get to be a lot of work to create and position all these cuboids.

yea, it must of been a slic3r setting
