How change infill percentage only for the first layer?

Postby sepp974 » Mon Mar 09, 2020 5:57 pm

Hello,
how can I could do for change infill percentage only for the first layer?
I want for example, first layer at 85%, second and third at 100% (bottomn solid); 15 % for the rest of model and 100% for top solid.

It is possible?
I suppose I can do it in the tab group and layer settings, but I don't find the property.

We have just released the new version last week.
Please go to our website, download center to get the latest version. There is a new feature in new ideaMaker called First Layer Solid Fill Extrusion Percentage which can help you improve the print result for the first layer.

Hello and thank you for your reply.
But with this command I can change width extrusion for the first layer (the filament flow). What I want is change infill percentage only for the first layer. Is there a way for do it?

Actually modifying the extrusion width may work better on improving first layer print result.

If the Solid Fill Extrusion Width for First Layer hasn't been enabled in ideaMaker, the extruder width of first layer will be only used on defining the extrusion width set for first layer shells and infills.
