Has anyone here ever created a custom infill pattern for 3d printing? I'd like to make a progressive rectilinear infill that rotates the angle by a set-able amount each layer.

No, I sure haven't, But I would love to test my structural engineering skills.

Do you know how one would go about doing this?

I don't know a ton, but here's what little I've picked up so far:

  1. Slic3r is open source, coded in C++, and can be recompiled at will (Gitbhub)
  2. Code for infill is written in Perl

I don't know Perl, but I imagine compiling your own version of Slic3r would be manageable.

Just FYI - Simplify3D can do this, but you have to manually enter the angles (see below "Internal Infill Angle Offsets").  Of course it isn't free OSS like Slicer.

This is what it looks like, 20% fill, 10/20/30 deg on first 3 layers:

It's not really full custom either, just rotating the builtins.

That's really good to know, and just one more reason I should upgrade my software. Seems a bit of a pain to have to enter it for every layer, but I suppose excel plus copy and paste would get the job done quick.
