sandwich structure for carbon fiber prints

Mon Jul 06, 2020 11:25 pm

As we know the sandwich structure used by markfored cf printer is quite useful for high streghth multimaterial parts.
This can be achieve in the normal slicer by define the outline by one exturder and define the innerline ,infiil with theother extruder.This will open a door to print multimaterial alloyed parts .togeher with varaiabel widths we can greatly improve the property of the materials and straghth distribution.for example,we can set 2outline (0.4)with nylon and 1innerline with carbonfiber (1.0) with 20percent nylon or cf infill thats gonna make your parts supper strong but very fast to print.
with this feature we actully print a coating toghether for the innerpart which looks like a sandwich.
I d like to see this happen in the new version.

Sounds like a great way to increase part strength but not effecting print time all that much. I imagine you'd still need oozeshields and or prime pillars when using this type of approach. Do you have any drawings or pictures to illustrate how you imagine this working both layer by layer and inside an individual layer?
