Start infill at a different position

Recommended Posts

Posted · Start infill at a different position



This topic may look strange (because it's a crazy idea).


It's possible to start the infill at a different position than the corner of your print?

I'm trying to print a Gyroid cube with no walls using TPU (the filament has some problems with the retraction speed, so I'm limited to some parameters) and it doesn't matter how much retraction I use, it still leaves a bit of stringing, so I thought that starting the infill at the middle of the print would allow the nozzle to push the string back to print stead of connecting it to the closest infill, which in this case is an "external infill".


Any ideas?

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
