Using Cura 3.5.1 and Ultimaker 2+

After 5mm I want to change the infill density from 18% to 80% and then remain at 80% until the end of the print.

Can this be done?

Thanks. I've seen this video before and it looks like the solution but I can't quite understand how it's done.

If I split my model into the parts that I want to have different infills, how do I lay them back together on the Cura buildplate? When I open a STL file in Cura it opens the model and puts it on edge anywhere on the buildplate. How can I align them all again?

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
