make first layer an infill pattern rather than solid

Postby lt72884 » Thu Aug 11, 2022 11:47 pm

Ok, so i have this 20mm diameter disk that is 0.2mm in height. I would like to print the first layer in the honeycomb infill pattern of 75% rather than the normal solid fill it does for first layers. How would i accomplish this? I will be using this disk as a make shift brim for some corners of a large cube being printed

thanks:)

the attached image is what i am trying to do

ok, i figured it out.. supper simple that i didnt even think of it. i set both top and bottom layers to 0. Another way is to use a modifier but that takes forever haha. I have also concluded that it takes an extra 30 seconds to print it solid and gives better bed adhesion. But for larger prints, this will work great to only use infil if making a big "raft" for some parts and not others
