Change infill setting for part of a model


Recommended Posts

Posted · Change infill setting for part of a model

I am using Cura 14.13.1 and want to change the infill setting for part of my model, but I cannot find how to do this., though I was able to do it on a previous version of Cura. I have seen a video demonstrating this feature, but it used an earlier version  which had different icons for altering the model. Is this feature still available in 14.13.1 and, if so, how do I do it.

    The "Support Blockers" can be configured in different ways.  The normal situation is to block support (Duh!!).  The tool above the Support Blocker tool provides the "Per Model" settings and one of them is "Modify settings for overlaps".

    Since a support blocker is just another mesh (and can be scaled and moved like any other mesh), you can configure them as "Infill Mesh" (which you want for changing the infill) or as a "Cutting Mesh" (which gives different possibilities).  Below is an image with the Support Blocker configured as "Infill Mesh" and I've added "Infill Density" and "Infill Pattern" as two of the settings changing them to 25% and Gyroid.  Within the overlap of the block with the part you can see that the density and infill type is different.
