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!

    • "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.
