Temperaturechange while printing?

Observation / Feature idea

I noticed that printing with lower temperatures and retraction is a good way to get rid of the pesky stringing, as the filament doesn't "drip" that much and therefore the retraction has less to worry about.

But a low temperature limits the speed with which the hotend can melt the filament, as the filament needs higher temperatures for higher speeds (or?).

So maybe it would be a good idea to vary the temperature a bit between "layers in which much retraction occurs" and layers "with much area to fill".

Does that sound somehow plausible?

    It sounds plausible, but an algorithm for that would require a lot of tweaking and configuring. Also, temperature changes take a while, so you would also have to account for that. Maybe, someday in the future we will have this capability.
