Bridging and concentric top/bottom pattern.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bridging and concentric top/bottom pattern.

I like to use the concentric pattern for top and bottom layers, but in places where there is bridging the concentric pattern does not work for obvious reasons.

Is there a way to override this in places where there is bridging with a pattern more suitable for bridging, but keep the concentric pattern in places that are supported?

    I've had the same dilemma once and found a suitable solution (at least for my case). If you are using a concentric pattern the circles will still be used for the bridges. But if you enable the bridge settings you can print up to three initial bridge layers first, before the concentric pattern will be applied. That gives the circles of the concentric pattern a solid base to stick on and you should be able to print solid bridges while keeping the concentric setting.
