Cool First Layer designs and Modifications via Cura setting and Portfiles


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cool First Layer designs and Modifications via Cura setting and Portfiles

Saw on Reddit a year ago that someone turned off the infill on the first layer and set infill after to be 100% with triangle infill to give the bottom a crystalline-looking structure. I've tried that with the newer versions of Cura and it seems to prevent you from doing that anymore. Just wondering if anyone has had success with that or any other cool first layer designs. I know MakeAnything has done it a couple of times with gcode modification and tweaking. Maybe a plugin could come from this idea of a drawing pattern for first layer (like a picture, carbon-fiber, swirls, etc).
