Trying to make an Infill-only 3D print

Recommended Posts

Hi!

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?

Thanks!

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

Thanks!

 

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!

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
