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.
