People kept badgering me to add this feature (https://www.cnckitchen.com/blog/gradient-infill-for-3d-prints) but I'm not yet convinced it's a good idea. Anyway, it's been a rainy weekend here so I had to do something.

 

Here's an example of what it does...

Notice how the infill that's away from the walls is thinner than the infill that's close to the walls.

 

If you want to try it, you can find the builds at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0

 

Please, please, please, read the README.md file that's there before using any of my builds and do make backups of your configurations, profiles, project files, etc. before you try it out.

 

All feedback is welcome, either here or at https://github.com/smartavionics/Cura/issues

Hi. Thanks for this implementation. It's now OK with Scharz D infill (with Gradient type 2D).

Is it possible in a future release to add an option to disable retraction only in the infill, for don't need to use anymore "join the infill" (gain of time and avoid the infill impact the skin) ?

Thanks again for your job !

    Hello!

    I can't find your build anymore (on the link you provided there is a Readme.MD pointing to Github, but from there.. I can't find builds with gradient infill)

    Even on CURA 4.8, I don't see it mentioned as an infill option.. is there any update on the matter?

    Thanks!
