4.4.1 Per Model Infill % Inconsistent for Overlapping Models


Recommended Posts

Posted · 4.4.1 Per Model Infill % Inconsistent for Overlapping Models

So I've got a model where I need to print the top portion at 100% infill for stability and I'm using the trick where you insert a support blocker and overlap with that area of the model and use per model settings to achieve this.  However, I've got a problem.


Whenever I set the support blocker to "modify settings for overlaps" and change the infill %, then slice, my layers don't show 100% infill.  Or, I should say that they don't show what I'm expecting to see.


See, I've also got one of those infill percentage demonstration pieces.  When I placed the blocks and changed the overlap settings, the 100% infill printed solid lines in alternating orientations all the way up, just like I expected.  I believe that this is what 100% infill is supposed to look like, regardless of what infill pattern is selected.  For the record, I'm using Quarter Cubic. 


On the model that I'm having issues with, the overlap area, even with infill % set to 100, I just get a very small version of the Quarter Cubic pattern, but it's not printing solid, like I'm expecting.


I'm very confused because it seems that Cura is treating the two models differently.  Does anybody have any suggestions?

        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.
