Different line width for top and bottom


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Different line width for top and bottom

I can only find "Top/Bottom Line Width" setting, is there no possibility to set different line width for top and bottom?

It would be very useful, using a high value for bottom (like 150% of nozzle size) would greatly reduce print speed for large flat objects, but using the same value for top is not a good idea.


I generally like using higher values for speed and strength, but it's problematic for overhangs, bridges and the first top layers, so it would be great to be able to set a different line width for these.
