replace topmost solid layers with infill


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · replace topmost solid layers with infill

In my models, I generally need to set Top/Bottom Layers = 3 to make the overhang walls to be without gaps. But I don't need the topmost solid layers, and hope the models to be open at the top with infill stucture exposed.


I tried using a modifier mesh and set it to Top/Bottom Layers=0, but new solid layers would be generatated immediately below the modifier mesh.


Is there any workround or trick to replace the topmost solid layers with infill?


Is it possible to add a post-processing script to simply stop printing upon starting to print the topmost solid layers.


Thank a lot for your suggestions!
