I'm working on developing alternative infill layers to print at different angles, using Slic3r. Using Slic3r's rectilinear infill, printing at specific angles for 3 layers then repeat.

I'm working towards finding the code in the source code where they alternate the layers and change it to alternate it for every 3 layers.

I know I will need some C++ knowledge to fiddle around with the Slic3r's source code, but if there is someone who can point me in the right direction I would gladly appreciate it!

  • $\begingroup$ It would be nice if there were a way to do this, or to specify NO angle changes. $\endgroup$ – Davo Mar 16 '17 at 11:38

Slic3r is available on Github.

I think the section you'd be looking for is here

  • $\begingroup$ Yups! Thank you for the comment! I have found that by changing the out angle you can command the angle at your will (Of course in programming terms). $\endgroup$ – Jiong Le Apr 25 '17 at 1:34
