Feature Requests for V5

Fab software but a couple of things which would make it 'fabber' for me:

 

1> Graduated Infill to surface (3D) rather than top (2D)

 

GI is a great idea and works well for some things but can lead to very weak areas lower down the model. e.g a housing with thin walls

 

GI should calculate infill density from the nearest surface instead of the top. e.g. If you are printing a sphere you want high density infill all around the inside surface but the center might as well be empty.

 

2> Profile for Creality Ender-2 Pro printer

 

3> Profile for Polymaker Polyterra PLA filament

    Cura already has this, it's called "cubic subdivision". See https://github.com/Ghostkeeper/SettingsGuide/blob/master/resources/articles/infill/sub_div_rad_add.md

    Profiles from machines and materials from third parties (eg; Not Ultimaker) are added because the manufacturer or a community member contributes them to us. We don't have the resources to create and add those profiles.

    Thanks for the reply, I am still new to all this and missed this infill pattern amid the mass of options.

     

    I will also prod the manufacturers support people about the profiles.
