Custom Profiles: Infill

    "sparseInfillPattern"

    String, [linear, hexagonal, moroccanstar, catfill, sharkfill]

    This setting determines the infill pattern, and must contain the name of one of the specific infill patterns built into the MakerBot Slicer. Choices include "linear," "hexagonal" and "moroccanstar." 

    "infillDensity" 

    Decimal, [0,1]

    This setting determines the density of infill, and must be set to a value between 0 and 1. A setting of 0 results in a hollow object and a setting of 1 results in a solid one.

    "initialOrientationOffset"

    Degrees

    This setting will only apply if "sparseInfillPattern" is set to "linear." In that case, the orientation of the first layer of infill will be rotated by the number of degrees set here.

    "infillOrientationInterval"

    Degrees

    This setting will only apply if "sparseInfillPattern" is set to "linear." In that case, each layer of infill will be rotated from the previous one by the number of degrees set here.

    "infillOrientationRange"

    Degrees

    This setting will only apply if "sparseInfillPattern" is set to "linear." In that case, the angle of infill layers will be reset to the angle set in "initialOrientationOffset" after the infill orientation has rotated by an amount greater than the angle set here.

    "gridSpacingMultiplier"

    Decimal, [0,1]

    Adjacent lines in roofs and floors or solid infill need to overlap slightly to form a continuous surface. The MakerBot Slicer determines the amount of overlap by multiplying extrusion width by the value set for gridSpacingMultiplier and using that value as the expected extrusion width. This results in the slicer spacing the lines of extrusion as if they are smaller than they actually are.

    "solidFillOrientationOffset"

    Degrees

    The first layer of any solid surface will be rotated by the number of degrees set here.

    "solidFillOrientationInterval"

    Degrees

    Each solid surface layer will be rotated from the previous one by the number of degrees set here.

    "solidFillOrientationRange"

    Degrees

    The angle of solid surface layers will be reset to the angle set in "solidFillOrientationOffset" after the solid surface orientation has rotated by an amount greater than the angle set here.

    "adjacentFillLeakyConnections"

    True/False

    When "adjacentFillLeakyConnections" is set to "false," the extruder will continue to extrude plastic when moving between two adjacent lines of infill. When "adjacentFillLeakyConnections" is set to "true," the extruder will not extrude or retract any plastic during these moves. Which lines of infill are adjacent is determined using the "adjacentFillLeakyDistanceRatio" setting.

    "maxSparseFillThickness"

    Millimeters

    This setting determines the layer height of any infill. Infill layer height must be a multiple of the value set for “layerHeight.” Vertical gaps smaller than the measurement set here will be filled with layers of the value set for “layerHeight.”

    "maxConnectionLength"

    Millimeters

    The slicer creates connecting paths instead of retraction before short travel moves. If a potential travel move is shorter than the length set here, plastic will be extruded to create a connection. If the move is longer than the distance set here, plastic will be retracted before the move.
