You can try the Post Processing Script "ChangeAtZ" to change the Extruder Temp at a specific height. But there are also a lot of other options there, so maybe you find something useful.

Yes you have to do in manually and also remove the post processing script after your print, otherwise it will be applied to all future prints as well.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
