Is there a way to change infill percentage at a certain height?

Recommended Posts

swap at z plugin.


Download it and copy it to your Cura Plugins folder...restart Cura.

To use:

Set the model up for the 10% fill you'd like. Save the model to your hard drive. (ex. C:\10fill.gcode)

Now set the bottom layer up to 100% infill. Go to plugins tab and initialize the "swap at z" plugin.

Enter height you want the 10 percent version to start (ex. 6.2mm)

Enter the name you saved the 10% gcode as (C:\10fill.gcode)

*** Make sure you add the ".gcode" *****

Layer view doesn't always show updated gcode

works with multiple gcodes

Be sure to give pmdude a big thank you!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
