Per Model Settings -> modify settings for overlap -> infill only

Never works, and you always have to manually set everything (outer wall, top, bottom layers) to 0 before you can get the expected result as shown in second image:

Here in the second img, I set the density to 3%, and that checkbox that says Infill Only is completely inconsequential. The expected behavior for having infill-only should be as seen in the second image.

 

 

 

I think I know what it's doing in the first image too. Cura interprets this support blocker object as a separate stl and tries to generate its own up/bottom/outer skins, and inserts it inside the main mode. This should honestly be off if InfIll Only is turned on. An easy fix would be to turn all 3 skin options to 0 like I have shown in the second image IF the checkbox is on.

    That's also why it will be in the next release 🙂

    Oh and if the infill only checkbox is going to be flipped on by default and appear in the options. You might as well show people the infill density option by default too. There's no point if I have to manually find infil density in the mess of options every single time

    Well, if you're going to do that, you may wish to display the infill pattern too as that is as likely to be changed as the density (IMHO).

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
