By chance, do you have a similar design showing the different infill designs?

Cancel the print before the printer finishes printing the top of the cube so you can see the infill inside of the cube.
or just scale it in z to 50% (just to save filament) and set 0 top layers.

Could you just use hot glue?

I can't seem to access the instructions, can anyone help with an assist?

No sure what happened I will contact Thingiverse

Since I just posted that comment erroneously 10 times in a row it's probably me...

"Cancel the print before the printer finishes printing the top of the cube so you can see the infill inside of the cube." Is there any other way? Is there any way to print without the top of the cube?

Set to 0 top layers in slic3r.

Very nice display. Though the one thing that it seems everyone forgets is that the % of infill size will changed based on the size of the object, because it is a % of that objects volume. So a 10% infill might give you a 1/4" honeycomb with this example.But if you scale it by 200% it will then give you a 1/2" honeycomb with the same 10% infill.

Will it? Couldn't it also just expand the same size pattern to whatever volume it's filling?

That is exactly what I'm saying it does. It takes the pattern and scales it up to that % of the object's volume.

Maybe I want clear. You were (I think) talking about it drawing larger hexes. I'm saying it would draw them the same size across, or would just fit more of them (or rather wondering if that's what if would do). A given hex size corresponds to a certain fill ratio, right?

that makes more sense to me infil should look same with different volumes the infill is the same width so 10% on something small would need the same space between as 10% on something big right?

very helpful, thank you very much!!!

Thank you for your amazing design!!! We wrote about this in our webpage!! http://www.filamentix.com/entendiendo-conceptos-3d-capas-infill-y-soportes/
