Infill alignment

Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill alignment

Does Cura make any effort to organize sections of infill? It often seems to make bad "choices" about the alignment of the infill to the model itself, as in this example:

If the infill was one line to the right, it would be providing balanced support. Instead, this pattern is going to provide uneven support.

The positions of the part's walls are not taken into consideration when the infill pattern is generated. The infill pattern is fixed with respect to the build plate so if you move the part on the build plate, the infill lines within the part will move with respect to the part's walls.

That was what I suspected, which means you also need to design the part accordingly. That seems like something that might be worth focusing on once I get to plugin development 🙂
