Control of infill layer alternation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Control of infill layer alternation

I'm new to Ultimaker Cura and have been impressed with the available infill settings--however one in particular seems missing. In default the 'line' and 'zig-zag' infills swap direction on alternate layers. I would like to control how many layers are printed before the swap. 

For example:

Currently, the line infill swaps direction every layer. i.e. relative print direction: 0°- 90°- 0°- 90°- 0°- 90°- ...

I would like an 'infill swap multiplier'. i.e. such that a value of '3' would yield:   0°-0°-0°-90°-90°-90°-0°-0°-0°-90°-90°-90°...

 

Does Cura have such a setting? 

Or can anyone recommend another slicing software that has this?

Yes you can do that.  It's called infill line directions.  I just tried it.  This will get you what you want

infill pattern: lines

infill line directions: [0,0,0,90,90,90]

Thank you gr5! 

That's exactly what I was looking for. Somehow I missed this setting before.
