Gradient infill now supported by experimental Cura builds

Recommended Posts

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 !

Do you think that Escher would approve?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      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. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
