Adaptive layers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Adaptive layers

I think a better way of having adaptive layers would be to change layer height based on line type

i.e Outer wall 0.15, Inner wall 0.2, Infill 0.3, Support 0.4

I think this could speed up printing and maybe increase layer strength by alternating heights.

    So you can indeed have infill layers be thicker than walls (not sure about support).  I believe the feature is called "infill layer thickness".


    And you could in theory do thicker layers for inner wall but only if the part has vertical walls.  Like when printing a coin or a cube or a cylinder or many other parts.  But 99% of parts are more complicated and have sloped walls.  Like a pyramid.  Or a cat.  And with sloped walls you are going to get a disaster if the inner wall is thicker than the outer wall.  If the slope is shallower than 45 degrees you can even have the inner wall sticking out through the outer wall!
