Fill Density (also called Infill) refers to how solid the inside of a 3D object is printed. An object printed at 0% fill density will be completely hollow on the inside. It will weigh less and cost less to print, but won't be as strong. An object printed at 100% fill density will print completely solid on the inside. It will weigh more and cost more to print, but will be very strong. A good rule of thumb is to use 10% to 20% fill density for projects that don’t require much functional strength and 50% to 75% for objects requiring high strength. Keep in mind that the higher your fill density, the longer the print will take and the more material you use, increasing the cost of the print.
