Different Layer Height for Infill and Shell

Postby Jiter » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:41 am

Hello,
for printing speed you could make an option where Layerheight for Infill will be twice or thrice the Shell.
So you just need every two or three layers one "infill-ride".

What do you think? I maybe find this an interesting option.
Cheers, David
If you can dream it, you can print it! :lol:

This is something I want as well. That we can set different layerheight for shell and infill.

This is a great idea. I'll make a note with our IdeaMaker dev team to see if it is possible to implement.
Thanks!

This has been discussed in other threads. You can also do this using Cura or Slic3r.

Simplify 3D has this as well.

Wouldn't it be possible to print infill at two layers at once? In addition to moving in x and y also incorporate a move in the z-axis while printing? that way you could print a zig-zag pattern up and down to fill out a larger volume at once.
