Allow Single Extrusion Infill alternative on Cura?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Allow Single Extrusion Infill alternative on Cura?

So every time I print something with walls my printer shakes VERY violently and makes a very scary noise. I'm worried this will hurt my printer. the print head basically vibrates for thin infill between the walls. Simplify3D has an option called "Allow Single Extrusion Infill". it basically turns those thin walls into a single extrusion line.

 

Is there anyway to solve this in Cura?

    Right now, that's how Ultimaker Cura behaves.

     

    I have an alternative implementation of the wall gap filling in my Cura releases that doesn't shake your printer to death.

    My releases (which can be installed alongside the standard Cura) can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0

     

    Sorry, only Windows and Linux are currently supported.

    Thanks.

    The problem with the OS X build is simply that the Mac Book I have is too old. As far as I am aware, the codebase works as well on OS X as it does on the other platforms. It just needs someone with a more modern OS X machine to take my source and do the build.

    Awesome! I"ll try it tonight.

     

    I wish cura also had per layer settings like simplify 3d processes. having different infills in different areas is awesome.

     

    what settings do I need to adjust for the said feature tho?

    Cura has something better than s3d processes, look up infill meshes, they really let you target specific regions that need different infill settings.

    If you are using my release, the setting for enabling the wall gap fill is the same as the Ultimaker version.

    Do you do regularly updated build? Or github I could get the latest. I also like the extra control. 🙂

    I release a new build whenever I add or fix anything or there are significant upstream changes. I don't have a regular release schedule.

     

    The mb-master branches in my github repos correspond to the latest releases. The mb-testing branches are what I am currently working on but they don't always get pushed to github.

    Hello smartavionics

    Like "AmyTheBun" I wanted to prevent my printer from rattling while printing small infills, so I installed "Cura-mb-master-win64-20190519" from your dropbox-link, but i can't find any differences between the infill options in Cura 4 and your MB-Master Cura.

    Did I installed the wrong version? Or maybe I just overlooked the option. Could you please tell me where I can find the option you implemented to stop the printer from shaking?

    Hello @Kramer, there isn't a different option but my implementation of the wall gap filling just works differently to the Ultimaker version. Have you actually tried it? Do you still get lots of shaking? If so, please save the project file (File -> Save) and attach the .3mf file to this thread. Thanks.
