Concentric external fill pattern prevents bridging detection

Sun Jan 24, 2016 1:53 pm

Do you know this as a bug ?

Take some model with a zone of needed bridging.

Set "External infill pattern" to "Rectilinear" => Nice slicing with normal bridging
Switch to "Concentric" => The bridging condition is not detected. A concentric pattern is put in mid air instead...

Workaround : place a special process with "Rectilinear" external infill on the layers surrounding the bridge.

That makes sense. It's not easy to do bridging with concentric fill ;)

If you want bridging, you need to use rectilinear fill

Well this solved my question. The bridging test I was working on had bridges so narrow that the perimeter shells took up the whole width and there was no infill. I didnt notice I was on concentric infill. Perhaps a notification or greying out with a tooltip in the "Bridging" settings if you have concentric infill selected would prevent confusion?
