extra slow speed for external solid infill

Mon Jul 01, 2019 6:11 am

Currently there's one underspeed setting for solid infill.

If you make it slow so that you can have a super-nice top layer well all those internal layers of solid infill at the bottom and top of the part are going to bE VERY SLOW TO PRINT.

Ideally there would be an underspeed setting for "solid infill "and an underspeed setting for "external solid infill" i.e. top layers of any plateaux in the part.

So underspeed for solid infill might be 90% and underspeed for external solid infill 40% (just the outermost layer).

What a great idea! Automating this would be a huge improvement over creating a separate process for the areas of parts spanning large areas with a flat surface. I can see this being immensely helpful for more organic shapes. I'll keep an eye on this thread for more user feedback.
