possibility to create different options for the same piece

Posted · possibility to create different options for the same piece

hi, 

Is it possible to make the piece, a cylinder for example, be printed with different options depending on the height? or certain portions?
I know that with slic3r it is possible but I can not do it and I would like to continue using cura

 

thanks

Have a look at the g-code postprocessing plugin. You can find it under extensions in the top menu bar. The tweak at Z might do what you need.

I know you say you want to use Cura, but the options with post processing are limited. If you really need to tweak different heights (or parts of the item) Simplify3D gives you way more flexibility.

Multiple processes would make cura awsome?

You can also use per model settings, and either cut up your model beforehand and reassemble  them in Cura, or by using the Mesh Type dropdown you can use a mesh as a modifier mesh. Caveat: you cant change the layer height in this way.
