How to prohibit the use of Top and Bottom Fill Layers on certain layers?

Postby 3603d » Fri Dec 21, 2018 10:13 am

It is necessary to print a hollow model without bottom and cover, while the function Upper and Lower filling layers is necessary, since the model has protrusions. Tell me, please, is it possible to prohibit the use of the upper and lower layers of filling on certain layers, above and below, so that the bottom and the lid are not printed?

Do you mean you want to print a model with no top and bottom solid layers?
You can edit top and bottom solid layers to be 0 under Infill tab in Advanced settings. But once you edit it, it will affect the whole model.

Thank! I am sorry that this is not possible. In slic3r this is possible with the modifier. I hope that this feature will appear in future versions.

Would you mind to share the gcode file with Slic3r created with me? It's a little hard for me to imagine a model with hollow structure in certain height inside the model without top solid layers? How could the layers after that height being built properly on it without a solid base?

So you only want to top neck part doesn't have solid top layers but all the structures below that have solid top layers as normal?

Yes that's right. But the bottom is the same.
