Feature Request: Improved infill + resume at Z/Layer Height

Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature Request: Improved infill + resume at Z/Layer Height

The first: I've noticed that on "every layer" crossing infill such as grid, triangles, cubic, etc, the intersect points become over-extruded and cause the nozzle to drag / skip over said points both during print and travel moves. Perhaps it would be appropriate to reduce filament pressure as it travels over these points, or potentially some other solution like a quick jerk on the head to get it over before plastic accumulates

The second: I believe would be useful when trying to save a failed print or resume after power failure. Resume print feature (Start at Z height). This is particularly useful in printers like my own that don't support relative extrusion, and chopping the Gcode results in a midway E6543 or similar that just munches filament.

      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.
