Posted · different wall layer height and infill layer height

Hello.
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.

    Hi

     

    No thats not possible in Cura, you can only use one layer height for all extruders and all walls.

    If you really need that, Simplify3D can do that.

    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.

    Thanks for clarification, this is new for me.

    I guess the difference should not be too high, otherwise the nozzle could touch the infill or wall, depending what comes first.

    Thank you very much, I was looking for that.
    layer height = 0.1

    infill layer thickness = 0.3

    everything worked well.
    Until I accidentally reduced the temperature to 90 °

    Thanks again for your help.
