Solid InFill

Wed Jan 07, 2015 4:19 am

Awaiting for a better infill pattern, I tried to improve my prints with current available options.

To have a strong infill pattern I use an Angle of 135. My Angle List is : 135, 135.
Infill lines are parallel and strong.

But this way, the Top solid layer are falling down between the infill lines :shock:

My question is:
Is it possible to set different Angles for Solid infill and internal infill ?

I already tried lot of combination of angles list
for instance: 45, 45, 45, -45, -45, -45. to have a minimum of 3 layers overlapping. But no way, the print is too weak.
To the S3D team, one improvement would be to use the angle list for the same layer.

You have to use more than one process and switch the angle at the right height. It works but it's a pain and only works on some parts (parts with extrusions at a lower height still have the same issue). Also you need to be aware of layer height differences on the first layer when calculating the height to start/stop the processes or you may get a bad join between the two processes. (Ruined me a 25 hour print once that way.)

45, -45, 0, 90 works quite well at 15% for infill
