Change print speed dependent on height

Recommended Posts

I did some searching but likely don't know the 'key terms' to use, so my apologies if this has been asked/solved already.  Long story short, I  print on an Anet A8 and e10 where the bed moves in the y-direction.  I have gotten serviceable prints by changing speeds/etc.  Where I am running into trouble is with taller prints at a decent speed (60 mm/s).  I believe much of the problem comes from the y-axis moving back and forth with a long (tall) object on the bed.  I was wondering if Cura allows me to set the speed based on layer height.  I do slow down the speed for brim/initial layer, but I was thinking I could print ~ 80 mm/s for the first 'x' layers, and then slow down as the object gets taller.

 

I thank you in advance.
