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?
