Layer Alignment

Postby lawlence » Mon Jul 16, 2018 4:28 am

Not sure if this is a feature already, but I see a need for it.

I have certain parts where being able to align the fill/infill direction would be helpful, either for aesthetic reasons on a bottom or top layer, or aligning infill to optimize contact with certain points of the model (for bridging or overhang, for example). Having the layer alignment on the raft adjustable would be nice too since that has an impact on the first layer finish.

Is it like the Interlaced Support Infill Angle for Support structure under Support tab?

Ah yes, that would suffice for the infill. Would be nice to have an option for visible (top/bottom) surface layers as well.

Do you have needs for both top and bottom solid infill layers or only for infill structures inside model?

All of those, really. I just played with the interlaced infill angle option and it looks like it only works with supports. Would be nice to be able to rotate or translate the infill angle independent of model orientation (so every duplicate is the same), or somehow fix it to a user-defined axis on each individual model, so they can be arranged as needed on the build platform.
