New type of infill: Support Infill


Recommended Posts

Posted · New type of infill: Support Infill

It would be great to have another type of infill, one type that works just like the support structure.

There are many prints that I would let the infill 0%, but because some little bits of the print that would be hanging if I have 0% infill I must place infill in all the model.

It would be great if I could place support structures inside the model to support only the bits that need support, to make even shorter time prints with less filament.

Thanks for everyone that reads and is thinking about implementing this in the program.

    Thanks for the tip, I searched for that online and in the support settings but couldn't find it.

    Then when I tried it I found out that it must be paired with Infill Overhang Angle to work as I wished.
