Infill pattern questions

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.

        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.
