Different Wall Thickness outer/inner


Recommended Posts

Posted · Different Wall Thickness outer/inner

Im 3D printing a shape similar to a tube like structure. I need 2mm thick walls on the inside of the tube but only 0.5mm walls on the outside of the tube, to save print material is there a way to do this as so far I've only seen all walls having to be the same thickness, thanks in advance to anyone who can help in any way, shape or form

    You can do this with mesh modifiers.  You can add a cylinder that only includes the outer or only the inner edge and modify the wall thickness for just that region.


    The video below explains it.  Maybe skip to about 3 minutes into the video.  Unfortunately the video is 6 years old so the cura interface changed a little but not much.  I think you can figure it out.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
