Infill pattern questions


Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill pattern questions

Dear forum members:


I literally just created an account to ask this one question. I have no previous experience in 3D printing, and here is a problem that I wish you can help me solve:

I need to print parts with a linear infill pattern, but I do not want the linear paths to alternate between layers by 90 degrees (which seems to be the only available option in the preset  options). I am wondering if I can achieve this in the software GUI or do I have to manually alter the final G code. I would really appreciate any solutions you can provide.


Many thanks!

    Hello @tilio09101, there is quite a lot of flexibility when you look at the custom infill settings. There's a few different infill patterns and then you can alter density, line angles, etc. For example, I have a print that I use lines infill with line angles that cycle through 0, -45, 0, +45 degrees as I wish to have more strength in a particular direction.
