Infill only on the outline reduse time and cost

Sat Feb 27, 2016 4:53 pm

Hello,
big models need much Infill, that is much cost and time.
The Idea is a variable Infill to the Outline about 10mm also to the Bottom and Top.
The Infill not for the hole Body only for the Outline , Bottom and Top, by custumer variable change. 0mm-1000mm or full Infill.

@ palawanisland you have right, instead outside i mean Outline, i change them.

The Picture show the travel moves for the Outline and the Infill,
in the middle is no Infill, so you need less material, time and coast.

The Distance for each Layer to the Outline for the Infill is always the same for example 10mm,
10mm is a custom variable adjustment, more ore less 0mm-1000mm.

So if a part has no infill in the center, how to you propose supporting the top surface?

and you believe the first layer of top infill printed over air will hang there long enough to support subsequent layers? Perhaps a lower-density infill in the center would be easier to execute.

Sometimes to avoid long print and especially when it's possible, you can print without supports, and without anything, then you can pour the plaster in the interior, or resins
I often do this, whenever possible
