Custom Shell possible?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Custom Shell possible?

hi all,

Cura 4.3.0.


Is it possible to custom the shell number using Per Model Settings or another setting? Do you know how?

Please see attached picture, 3 for Wall line count is fine in external perimeter (green), but I'd like it to be increased in the internal hole (blue).


Thank you for your reply.

you can use a cylinder like the one attached.

Move it to the part you want to modify and scale it so it matches your needs. 

Then choose the cylinder and use "Per Model Settings" -> Modify settings for overlaps.


There select the setting you want to change (not everything is available, but line count is possible)


I just tested it and for me it works.


Best regards

      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.
