different wall layer height and infill layer height

Recommended Posts

I am new and my English language skills are weak,
I apologize for possible misunderstandings.
Use Google Translator.

My question would be that the height of the wall and the height of the filling layer may be different?
For example:

number of wall wire = 3
wall height = 0.05 mm
other height = 0.2 mm

only the outermost wall wire is 0.05 mm.
The other two wall wires and the infill height are 0.2 mm.
So we get a smoother surface, but faster.

Cura does do this.  Although I think they changed the name of this maybe.  I think it's this one:

infill layer thickness


It must be an integer of normal layer height.  So your example of 0.05 and 0.2 should work.  Note that if the part has sloping walls it gets messy.  But if your walls are all vertical then it works great.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
