Gyroid fill pattern

Thu Jan 19, 2017 1:27 pm

MIT researchers have developed a biologically inspired structure that makes 3D printed objects exceptionally strong.

This has obvious application as a next-generation fill pattern, and would be great to see as an option.

This is pretty cool, I'd like to see it tried at least.

+1 here. Was going to submit this feature request. Should be a great infill option (if heavy on the gcode size).

Already available in Slic3r as it seems... next update in S3D maybe?

Excellent idea! If not gyroid, at least some kind of other 3D infill that changes vertically and that is strong in all directions would be fantastic.

Gyroid infill

A new type of infill has been added to slic3r, it is the gyroid infill, is it possible to add this infill type in next release of S3D, it is really strong, and stressless for the printer than printing honeycomb which introduce more vibrations.

I too would appreciate this being included in the next update. This is the best infill for making for a stronger printed model, and it looks awesome :)

I also agree, I love the new gyroid infill Slic3r has.

Also agree.
And Infill only where needed.

I also would find this to be a pretty important feature.
