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.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
