Multiple infills for one part

Hello,

 

I want multiple infill for the same part. I splitted it into 2 STLs and used "merge" to get them perfectly positionned and set per-settings (95% and 30%) for the infills.

However,  Cura doesn't keep a common wall and is still making two walls, which I think will make the part very weak at this point. How to prevent that?

    Support Blockers can be configured in different ways.  Put your model back together.

    The icon above the Support Blocker button is for "Per Model Settings".  You can add a support blocker.  Scale it and move it where you want, set the Per Model setting to "Modify Settings for OverLaps".  Leave it as an Infill Mesh.  In "Select Settings" go through the list and add "Infill Density".  Set that to your 95%.  The rest of the settings (wall count, top count, bottom count, etc) will be zero.

    The Support Blocker here is now a Mesh Modifier to change the infill of the area it overlaps my model.
