Locally increasing flow to imbed a mesh into a print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Locally increasing flow to imbed a mesh into a print

Hello UM Community,


I have a project where I am trying to imbed a mesh disk into a part by pausing and resuming. The disks I have aren't the most even, so I want to give a decent margin to avoid scraping the nozzle. I need to then increase flow when the printer is putting the first layer of plastic over the mesh to get it to lay very well over the mesh. I've seen that in PrusaSlicer, there are recent additions of something like setting modifiers for particular regions, but I have an S5, so I am limited to Cura.


I figure I could either add some gcode for that layer or use a second shape overlayed over the actual part with per model settings set to increased flow... 

Has anyone else tried doing something like this? Any tips or wisdom?
