Multiple infills per object

Wed Feb 06, 2019 1:48 pm

I am having trouble figuring out how to re-enforce sections of a model. I found this article https://www.simplify3d.com/support/arti ... f-a-model/ which details how to use multiple processes to change the infill when slicing vertically, but I want to re-enforce vertical regions around say a bolt-hole but not the entire layer. Here is an example model, the sections in blue needs to have a higher infill % than the areas which are not.

I have looked at just increasing the number of shells and that sort of works, but it's a bit of a sledge hammer and creates hard inside corners:

Is it possible to do what I want within the software?

The functionality you describe is not currently available in Simplify3D but it is a fantastic suggestion. I am moving this to Feature Requests so that other users can chime in as to how they feel about this. Thank you for your input!
