Cura 5.1 per model infill overlay settings?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 5.1 per model infill overlay settings?

I use per model all the time for custom supports and settings custom infill density areas. I find it quite frustrating that every time I add a new custom support and then in permodel modify settings for overlaps>infill mesh only... I get a basic subset of infill settings but they never include the most used one being "infill density". Every time I add a new object I have to click the "Select Settings" button and tick the "Mesh Density" in the list to bring it into the selection list. Is there any way of setting mesh density so it always comes up in the default list?

    Hey @Badgersurfer,


    I see some value in this request. 
    I wouldn't know how to do it, so I'll have to ask the team. 

    Fingers crossed 🤞

    Well done. If you do maybe you can pass this idea to them as well. I use several different blocks for different processes and if one overlays the other it would be a great advantage to rename the default names you give them.

    Hey All,

    It seems I haven't followed up on this. 😅
    I discussed the issue with the team and they also see value in adding a way so certain settings always show up when you use a modifier mesh if you work with a lot of them.

    For internal reference CURA-9668.


    Let's hope it gets a high enough priority to implement soon.
    Fingers crossed 🤞
