Question and possible suggestion for cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Question and possible suggestion for cura

I was wondering if it's possible to print an object that is fine to use 8% infill, but specify thinner parts of the same print get 100% infill?  If not, anyone know if adding this functionality to the slider is even possible?

    It is already possible, you set the infill to 8% and then you have to make an additional part (design a simple cube somewhere) and put this cube (or any other shape you need) onto the build plate. Position these object to overlap your part you want to have 100% infill and then select from the left menu "Per model setting" -> "Modify setting for infill of other models" and choose the setting you want. 


    This helper part will not print, it is just to change parameters where it overlaps with your main model.
