Infill is not sliced and printed every layer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill is not sliced and printed every layer

Just noticed after all my prints turns out to have very bad infill that cura 4.4 slices and prints all the infill with one "pause" layer(see attached picture). Is there a reason for this and how can i edit this so it prints support every layer? this really messes up all my prints where i need infill. Infill density is set to 1% and ive tried several other settings including pattern, line multiplier and thickness.


any tips or solution is greatly appreciated

    You're using zigzag infill pattern that prints alternate layers in different directions. Because the infill density is so low (you're using 1%) there's going to be a lot of air under each infill line. 1% gyroid infill does a better job (I think) but will still have problems at the top of the print where those rectangular skin areas are as they and the walls around them will be printed on air. You are going to need more infill to print those areas.

    gotcha. Ye noticed zigzag has alternate layers even at 30% infill but others like grid or gyroid has every layer. Top part as you say has too little support iknow but this isnt going to be an issue for me 😉 Thanks for replying anyway!

      • 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
