Feature request - different infill % for each part


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature request - different infill % for each part

I like to print multiple parts at the same time. The problem is I don't need the same amount of infill for all parts which increases production time. I would like to be able to set different amounts of infill for different parts in the same print. So basically if I print 3 parts at one time I would like to be able to set one part to x% another to xx% and the 3rd to xxx%.

    Usually, support blockers are used...you know...to block support.

    They can also be configured as Mesh Modifiers to either add, alter, or remove things.  Add a support blocker, select it, and choose the tool "Per Model Settings" which is just above the support blocker tool.

     

    This is a support blocker configured as a Cutting Mesh, using Modify Settings for Overlaps, and the only setting selected is Infill Density.  The part on the left is 15% infill as set in the main settings, and the part on the right is 50% infill as set for the Modifier.  Support blockers can be scaled and moved like any part and there are special shapes available (cylinders, cones, etc,.) by loading additional plugins from the MarketPlace.

    Supports aren't....you know.....infill. So maybe there should be a dedicated option for changing the infill % for a selected part like the scaling option to simplify things.

     

    Next time dial back the sarcasm. Not everyone knows everything. I'm sorry I didn't know there was a setting inside an option that was named something that had nothing to do with infill. Next time I'll try being a know it all like you so I don't suggest a setting that's already there.

     

    Sarcasm aside, thanks for the info.

    Actually it's simpler than that.  What I described is how I usually adjust the infill in different areas of a single model.  For your multiple models just select one and then select the Per Model Settings and Infill Density.
