Editing Layers

With ultimate control comes ultimate responsibility.

The default print settings are optimized to produce strong, reliable parts with a high completion rate. The layer editor gives you full control, but we suggest you proceed with caution, and keep a watchful eye on the printer to prevent any damage to the print head. 

For example, you can design parts, and edit layer to a point where the print will not complete well.

  • If you use extremely sparse infill settings, and you specify one roof layer, nylon parts will not close well. 
  • If you print overhangs with an angle greater than 45 degrees, and don't use supports, parts will not complete well, and may have burnt sections.

Layer Options

  • Roofs - use these to cap infill (triangle fill / hex fill / square fill).  The parameters have been optimized for bridging gaps.
  • Floors - use as the default solid layer.
  • Walls - outer layer / boarder of each part.
