Trying to make an Infill-only 3D print

Posted · Trying to make an Infill-only 3D print


I'm trying to make an infill-only object.

I set Wall thickness & Top/Bottom Thickness to 0 but....

Cura Infill seems to generate some kind of "closing gaps" or will be closing pointing infill lines as shown in the exemple pic

Any ideas how to avoid those extra infill lines that actually don't show up in Cura but appear when printing?

Hi @Adam324, this has finally been solved by @smartavionics :



Thanks, I imported that profile. When I slice your model I get this which doesn't have any explicit lines between the ends of the infill but it is doing non-retract moves (dark blue) so you are probably getting stringing:




If you disable the combing you will get retraction with the moves (light blue lines) and so should not get stringing between the ends of the infill lines:




Hope this helps!
