Has variable skin/infill been done or feasible

Recommended Posts

1st post long time cura user. Thank you for a good slicer.

 

After talking about layer height in a FB forum a thought occurred to me.

 

Has any one tried to do a variable thickness perimeter and infill.

 

To be clear, run three layers of perimeter at .1 then .3 infill then repeat. Infill is only printed every 3rd layer. In my mind I think it would greatly speed up the process. I was also thinking they would have to force a 3 wall perimeter to ensure layers above had enough plastic to print on.

 

Just a thought

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
