The outer shell of a 3D print is its perimeter. The internal support that holds up the upper part of this is called infill. This video teaches you about how to judge the appropriate amount of material in either one.
- [Instructor] When you create something with a 3D printer, … you have some control over how smooth the surface is … and how strong the print will be. … 3D prints have an outer shell called a perimeter, … wall, or shell. … Inside, this is a lattice work … that supports the print internally called the infill. … In this video, … we'll introduce the perimeters and infill parameters … and what happens if you vary one or the other. … Now let's drag a cube 20 millimeters on a side … with a hole in it into Cura … and go to preview mode. … Cura lets us simulate a 3D print in preview. … Here, you can use the sliders to move from layer to layer, … or you can animate one layer at a time. … Let's start the first layer and show how it builds up. … As we go up from the first layer, … we can see that there's a solid wall around the outside … of the print called the perimeter … or sometimes, the wall of the print. … The structure inside the print is infill. … Printers that use filament typically use infill …
