Support Blocker to control print speed

So I have successfully used support blocker to add more infill to my prints to areas of a print where more infill was needed.  

 

I have a print were in one section, I would like for it to print slower.  I activated the support blocker and changed the settings over to speed.  But when I slice it, and preview it, the whole object prints at the same speed.  Anyone have any ideas why this is not working?

 

thank you.

    Hello,

    Cura 4.6.1 

    Condition 1 : You must use the option "Cutting Mesh" for the Modify settings overlaps function and not Infill mesh only 

    Condition 2 : As you have already fixed some values for the speeds you must change each individual speed values and not only the global Print Speed value.

    Condition 3 : If your part is small don't forget that the cooling settings : Minimum Layer Time and Minimum Speed can limite your print speed.

    Thank you for the reply.  I am using version 4.5 and I do not see the cutting mesh option.  Is it available in version 4.5?

    You probably know the answer! If you can't find the option, it isn't there! Why not upgrade to 4.6.1 version?

    In 4.5 you need to uncheck the option Infill only, it's not  very different.

    On the same computer, you can have several cura release running in the same Times. Don't be afraid to install the last release if you don't uninstall in the same times the previous one.

    I will give this a try again.  I have a slightly related issue.  I have my walls set to print at 80 mm/s.  But when I go to the preview and check the feed rate, it shows much slower, around 15 mm/s.  

     

    I am currently using the Artillery Sidewinder printer.  Someone made the profile for cura 4.5 that i am running.  If I install 4.6, can I still us that printer profile?

     

    thanks.
