Smart Infill

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Another feature request/idea.

Printing without infill is king - it is really useful, fast and most of the time parts are durable and stable enough. I whish there would be a smart infill option that adds support material for areas inside the object.

Look at this example:

Those new areas appear at layer 77 ad go up to the top.

There is no way they will print like this. I have to print with infill (15%) to support them. But most of the infill (+infill printing time) is wasted.

It would be nice if Cura could catch this corner case and would add support only for those areas.

What do you think?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
