Trick Request: Switching Print Profiles Mid Print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Trick Request: Switching Print Profiles Mid Print

Looking for advice. I have a print that I want to have solid fill for about 30 mm up but want to switch profiles so that the rest of the print has 25%. As it is I am making a Double Helix and the structure is strong enough but I want the base and part of the spiral solid to have greater strength. Almost sure that it can be done.

You cannot switch profiles, but you can add a cube or something like that (second model) and move this cube to overlap the area you want to change. Then use the "per model settings" to change the parameters you want. You cube mesh will only be used to change to parameters and will not be printed.
