Fill Extrusion Percentage %

Posted · Fill Extrusion Percentage %

Currently on my prints the fill payers on the top and bottom have too much material in them and they are forcing the PLA on those layers to push slightly beyond the edge limit of the model. It is slight but noticeable. (sorry no pictures as of yet)

I did not want to change the "Infil overlap %" in expert settings because I am getting good results on all the other layers.

With that said is there a way to control the the fill layer only with a setting that is like the "fill percentage" or "Initial layer line with %"?

    I see you have a mendel. What is your overlap %? If it's higher than 30% then you should lower this to 15% and instead tighten your belts as you probably have some backlash (aka play) and fixing this with infill overlap is not the best solution.

    But to answer your question, Daid has a newer version of Cura - not released yet - that will allow you to create regions of your print and adjust any parameter for any region. So you will be able to do exactly this in the next major release.

      • 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
