Adjusting Print Settings

Pre-Made Slicing Profiles

Import our default settings as it is tuned for the filament we use. Ensure you enable Breakaway Supports if required in your model, as this is off by default.

Download for Cloud or Desktop slicer:

Here are some of the main parameters that are changed. You can always find more details on other settings in the Slicer or official documentation.,

In general:

Setting ChangeBenefitsCons

Finer / Increase

Increase in print quality or strength of part

Higher material usage (cost) and print time

Coarser / Decrease

Decrease in print quality or strength of part

Lower material usage (cost) and print time

SettingDefaultMin- Effect+ EffectMax

Infill Density


10% Only if no large flat surfaces.

Weaker, but less material/time.

Stronger, but better strength acheived with more Shells.


Support Angle


30% if supports are required.

Less wasted material on supports, but riskier print.

Less risky print, higher quality on overhangs.


Layer Height (Shell)



Slower prints, but higher z-resolution.

Faster prints, but lower z-resolution





Weaker print

Stronger print


Large Flat Surfaces

For large flat surfaces, adjust the following settings through the custom settings:

Infill Density: At least 15%

Roof Surface Thickness: At least 1.2mm



Pick the right orientation for strength

Remember that you can always refer to our design guidelines to better understand orientation.

Bed Layout

Reducing the space between objects will also reduce print time. The print-head or extruder of a 3d printer will need to move in-between objects. Reducing the distance the extruder needs to move will reduce the overall print time. Make a judgement call with regards to this setting. If a reduced spacing between objects will result in a singular raft, this will increase the likelihood of warping. Particularly with a long print.
