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!
