Changing the print temp variably in Cura.

I have a wood PLA filament that I heard could change color based on temperature. Is there a way that in Cura 3 that I can variably change the temp throughout the print? Like with a curve or something? If there isn't Ultimaker should seriously consider adding one. I'm using a CR-10 (not sure if that matters).

    There is a Cura add-in, Tweak at Z or something like that. In fact I think there two add-ins with similar names. I am sure one of them would let you change extruder temp. at various points through the print.

    No.  Just try it.  However it could be quite tedious to put in 30 tweaks at 30 different heights simply changing the nozzle temp on each one.  There used to be a plugin for cura 15.* which you might want to use instead that is designed specifically to change the temp randomly.  I recommend installing cura 15.* and locating that plugin instead. But it will be work - you'll have to learn a new (simpler) cura and locate the right plugin, download the plugin, put it in the right folder.  From that point on it's easy.
