Using random layer start ppsitions

Is there away to randomize the starting point of new layers in Cura 4.7+?


I have been trying to print a small part with delicate overhangs using Peth. The part prints well except the overhang seems to be at the start / endpoint of the layers and as such the hotend stays on it too long melting it is there away to start at another point so this area can have a chance to cool?


I am printing slow, have tried the fan on low speed, and used z hop. They help alittle.


Thank you
