Cannot rotate infill lines?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cannot rotate infill lines?

I would like to rotate the infill lines in this example



I try values in the 'infill lines direction, 0,45,90 etc but this has no effect? 


How can I change the direction of the infill?

    I can't read the angle in the screen shot, for some reason the image is very low resolution for me, but I have run into this, or something similar before. It didn't seem to matter what number I put in Infill Line Direction and Cura seemed to just ignore it. When I had a sequence of different line directions, I had previously seen it end up in square brackets for top and bottom line direction, like [0,30,60], and this always worked, so I tried it a sequence of one direction, and that has been reliable for lines, zigzag, grid, and triangle. It might work with the other patterns, too.


    Long story short - the fix for me was to put the number of degrees for the rotation within square brackets. For example:


    ... generates the same result as leaving the direction blank, but:


    ...rotated the pattern direction by 15 degrees.


    I hope this workaround works for you!

      • 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
