Layer thickness

Hi there


Hope you can help me. I am using Ultimaker Cura and a cr-10s.

Is it possible to make some areas of the print thicker (higher wall thickness) - some of the horizontal layers? (it will be in the middle of the print).

    Not at the moment.


    The only thing that approaches this is the 'Adaptive layers' option but that won't allow you to choose where you want thicker or thinner lines, it does it automatically on specific places on a print, to make holes or curves look more smooth while not requiring you to print your whole object at 0.06mm, for example.

    You can design a simple cube or something like that and put that model on the build plate too. Then select this cube and choose the "per model settings" in the left menu. There you can make different settings for these areas where your cube overlaps with your model. The cube will not be printed, it is just to change settings.

    Hi there


    First - thanks for your answer.
    I have looked at the " Adaptive layers " option - it did not solve my problem - actually I have not really got the idea of it yet..


    Actually I should have added a picture of it - but the problem was weak material due to infil. I found a option "Minimum infil area" that did id - so the area of the weak spot is solid.


    Again thanks for your suggestions - and the overlapping thing sounds interesting - I will have it in my mind.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
