MakerBot's new 'Minfill' 3D printing mode dynamically adjusts infill, makes printing 30% faster

MakerBot has introduced Minfill, a new Print Mode for its 3D printers that determines the absolute minimum amount of support needed for the inside of a 3D print. MakerBot says Minfill typically prints 30% faster using 30% less filament. Of all the 3D printing parameters you’re likely to fiddle with on your 3D printer, infill can be the most beguiling.
