Different settings for Top and Bottom layers respecting to Line width and layer thickness.

Posted · Different settings for Top and Bottom layers respecting to Line width and layer thickness.

Regarding the possibility of the use of a different setting for: the Top and Bottom infill line width.  I think it will help to save time in the printings, while allowing the user to customize the prints. It can be useful when the surface of that top or bottom layers wont be at the very top or bottom, as when the user want  a different surface at first or the last layers of that printing. Like in, instead of ironing the surface, the user can choose to use the pattern, as a finishing pattern for the print.

Regarding the possibility to set different layer thickness for different parts of the model or different objects inside the printed object might also save time in the printings or give more options about how the print is going to look like when finished.


I like the software very much, I´m talking about the Cura slicer. Thank you for your time and attention.
