Daid, I know this might be a dumb question, but the thing I came to love most about Netfabb is the way it does infill (and since I started using Cura, that and raw speed are pretty much the only things I miss from Netfabb). I print a lot with transparent plastic and it really looks good on those, plus, it seems more sturdy than the default line infill in Skeinforge, at least in my experience. Now, I know this is a Skeinforge feature but since I presume you delved into Skeinforge quite a lot while programming Cura, I have some hope you could do something like that. Is it possible?

And thanks for an awesome piece of software. :mrgreen:

    Thanks for the software awesome :D

    I've indeed done my share of Skeinforge hacking already. However, the infill is the part that confuses the hell out of me, I have no idea how it works and why it works. So I stay away from it. So I cannot make this feature. The first time I notice the NetFabb infill I already thought, now that looks pretty! But I have no way to implement it in SF.

    Go and have a look selecting grid or hex as infill patterns in the export settings... at 25-28% they are quite sturdy yet print reasonable, 30% looks like a 60% infill (is it a bug or a feature?). it is a "works all the time infill", independent from any/most speed settings (unaffected by M220), none of the crumbly/flakey mess cura/slic3r can produce at speeds >90mm/s.

    but yes, a simply multiplier for cura infill would be really helpful.

    Yeah well, I did. But grid rectangular isn't really what I want, Netfabb's infill is more of a line infill which looks like grid rectangular without the massive amount of jerky moves. And I can't even begin to understand the logic behind grid hexagonal, it does have hexagons here and there but isn't much of a grid really. :) At least from what I sliced with it so far.

    @Daid:

    Ah, I was kinda afraid you would say that, haha. Thanks anyway.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
