Gradient Infill

Hi
CNC Kitchen just released a video where Stefan explains how he implemented "Gradient Infill". Unfortunetely no slicer implements it yet. This would be a really cool feature (and S3d would be the first to implement it).
He basically varies the flowrate from 25% to 300% depending on the distance to the outer perimeters...

The results are impressive.

This is the sort of thing that would make S3Dv5 a leader in slicing technology.....

My only fear at this stage is that unless the developers have been following new ideas and picked the idea up early, then its too late to be included in v5.

And we all know what some are bound to say …"!**@@@dy S3D! >The haven't included @@@!!!***&&%$£") in v5. They're a pile of ^^%$£"%&&*()&*^%£."

"You can only please some of the people some of the time! The rest.....ignore them! Whatever you do..or don't do...as far as they're concerned, you're in the wrong just be existing!"

jumped on this one

it's a superb idea, the first original one I heard in years... the gradient infill by gradually placing infill itself is a rather old idea (weird that no one did it) but this what Stefan suggests, gradually changing the flow from 300 to 20% - or better from X% to Y% is something I never hear anyone mentioning anywhere and is IMO really a gamechanger...

Add me to the interested list as well. Would love to see this as a feature in C3D.
