Cura function of the future

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura function of the future

Hello, i wanted to make a suggestion for a new feature for a future version of Cura.

I tried the adaptive layer feature and it is good but not very helpful for most models as it can only change layer heigth on different heigths of a model.

 

If you would programm a function that can make 3 outer lines at lets say 0.1 mm layer height and then 1 inner line with 0.3 mm layer heigth the print would be much faster and the model would look much nicer because all the layers you can see are printed in 0.1 mm layer heigth, the inner ones are hidden anyway.

 

Of cause to you would have to be in the correct ratio so the total layer heigth is the same accross the modell. I mean for example 3x 0,1 outisde 1x 0,3 inside, or for exampe 2x 0,1 outside and 1x 0,2 inside.

 

Combined with the function that you have already basicly integrated now, to print the top and bottom layers at 0.1 mm layer height all the outsides of a model could be hi-res printed in only a fraction of the time.

The future is now! See the "Infill Layer Thickness" setting.

Hello, thank you for your response, i will play with that setting now!

Although i think judging by its name this setting will affect infills only and does not change the layer height of internal parts of the model that are part of the model but invisible from the outside.
