TPMS infill patterns

Recommended Posts

Posted · TPMS infill patterns

Is it possible to use other triply  periodic minimal surfaces (TPMS) infill patterns beside Gyroid in Cura? Like Schwartz P or D?

Thank you

Thank you ultiarjan.

Actually I've read that paper since I'm doing my master thesis in this field. However, in that paper it seems they build the STL with that TPMS geometry. I think it is not the same as choosing an infill type which is done by the slicer program. 

 

What is your opinion?

I'm not sure if they generated an STL or just directly generated the G-code for the test prints, but they didn't use a slicer for sure as there is non available...

 

After a quick read of the article my interpretation would be that there is no real practical/mechanical reason to implement Schwartz P or D into Cura as they do not outperform the already implemented Gyroid infill.

They do look cool though 🙂

You are right, but I want to see the behaviour not only in compression but in other conditions.

Do you have any tips how I could generate my G-code with this tipe of pattern?
