Wall thickness around holes

Recommended Posts

Posted · Wall thickness around holes

Hi all. I may have missed it but I haven't yet found the answer. 

If you have cura set for walls to be two rows thick and the actual wall is 6mm thick with a hole vertical in the wall. This puts two rows around the hole. Is there a way to put more rows around the holes to make them stiffer?  

I haven't found a way yet.

    I haven't played with this much so take a close look at the preview.  I'm going to assume you mean more walls where the "tube" with a hole in it passes through an area of infill.

    Put a support blocker over the hole tube.  Scale it and move it until it covers the entire area you want to beef up.  In the Per Model tool there is one for "Modify Settings for Overlaps" and choose Select Settings and then Wall Line Count.

    I think something like that is what your looking for.

    Cool.  Thank you thats just what I needed. I didn't know that option was available to modify areas like that. Very useful.
