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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
