How to change support fill at a specific height

Recommended Posts

The new Cura will be able to do this. Hopefully it will be available as a beta soon. It's codename is "pink unicorn". I think some people have tried it already. I guess you could download all the source files from github and build all the pieces yourself.


Are you sure about it? I thought Cura PU will be able to do different infills for different objects, but not a variation of the infill within one object. But maybe you know more than I do or I do not remember correctly... :unsure: Daid will certainly let us know it tomorrow... B)

edit: I think a beta is not something to expect within the next few weeks...

Slicing up multiple g-code files of the same object and merging them together is not as easy as it sound the extrusion value is relative to the previous extrusion movement (G1 command with E component). So when just putting 2 parts together your first extrusion movement could result in either a retraction or over extrusion. But still is a nice idea which I'm current exploring current have AWK script that can put 3 gcode files together as one. Been able to print a rose starting with a layer height of 0.3 then switching to 0.2 layer height and ending with 0.1 layer height without above mentioned extrusion problems.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
