Shifted Infill and weak Prints


Recommended Posts

Posted · Shifted Infill and weak Prints

I got some Trouble with a Feet I want to print. To reduce the Amount of Filament, I just print the Part with 25% Infill. Normally, the Infill is sufficcient to make the Part strong enough. But that's just the Case when there are straight vertical outer Contours on the Object. If You have an Object with an outer Contour of about 40° or so, the Infill shifts with the outer Contour and therefore Infill-Lines are not straight vertical. The Result is a much weaker Object. The Shift is from bottomleft to topright. I believe, the Infill-Base uses the bottom-left outer Contour a Base.

Daid: please can You change the Base of an Infill to a fixed Point, so all Lines are straight vertical on ontop of the Previous? If You don't know what the Problem is, I can present You an Example....

    Instead of waiting for Daid I recommend you use an older version of Cura before 13.05. And choose "hexagonal" infill.

    Or try kissslicer. But really if you know Cura already I'd get an older version. You can install both and they will be clearly marked by their version number so it's easy to choose which cura you want.
