Infill that is air/liquid permiable?

I need to design a product that will be filled with a special liquid.  I can design two walls and an open infill pattern so the liquid can disperse, but is there an existing infill pattern that is open?  Something like stacked crisscross lines or similar?

    "gyroid" is a good choice.  Many of the patterns are *not* permeable and many are.  Just toggle through them - it's pretty obvious which are which (pick one - slice it - look at the result in PREVIEW mode and scroll through the layers).

    Thanks.  This is to hold product on an assembly station, to be filled with freezer gel and frozen so that the product stays cool during processing.  Letting the slicer deal with support/infill will be easier than designing a simple structure.  I am going to use PETG that should handle freezing and thawing.

    I was talking about slicer infill.  Again - try them all - it will take you all of 3 minutes to select each one, hit slice, and see the result.

      • 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
