Posted · Gradient infill now supported by experimental Cura builds

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 !

    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?

      • 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
