I have a model that is a little top heavy and want to make the bottom layers more dense.  I know there's a gradual infill setting but that looks like it makes the density go up as the layer height goes up.  Is there a way to flip that so the infill density on the bottom layers is more dense than the top?

    Hello @SavageBelief, the easiest way to achieve what you want is to use an infill mesh placed at the bottom of your object. You can then set the infill density to, say, 80% for that region keep the rest of the model at a lower density and the resulting object will be bottom heavy (depending on shape, of course).
