Editing Layers

Note: Legacy documentation is no longer being updated. For up to date instructions, see our Desktop Series support articles.


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.
