TweakatZ question

Recommended Posts

Just had a look - is it possible to change the infill multiple times, i.e. at different heights during the print? I have a print which will either be hollow or use 20% infill. But at various places screws will be inserted. So behind the wall I need to put a block for the screw to bite into. I am limited on how big I can make the wall thickness so I am worried that unless I have a 100% infill the bite of the screw may not be good enough.

In the model, you can make tiny perforations around you screw hole that are too small to print, but Cura will still add wall thickness around them. You could try experimenting with that.
