Adaptive Layer Height?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Adaptive Layer Height?

Hi Ultimaker People,


Is there a way to print the edge layer detail at a finer layer height than internal structural material.
for example on a simple round shaft placed vertically on the bedplate, could I print the external surface edges at a0.05mm layer height and then the internal material at a thicker 0.1mm layer height or even 0.2mm height. Obviously internal thicker layer height would have to be a multiple of the finer edge layer height and the finer edge layers would need to print first both the functional material and dissociable support material.
