different infill on level

There are at least 2 ways to do this now.  Using a Support Blocker you can select from the "Per Model Settings" and alter the settings for Overlaps.  The Support Blocker then becomes a Mesh Modifier and you can add Infill Density as one of the settings to alter.  Just move and scale it as you would a model.

The other method is specific to helping support roofs.  "Gradual Infill Steps" adjusts the infill density as it approaches a roof so the roof skin has sufficient support from the infill while the lower portion of the model will have sparse infill.


This is with a support blocker set to 100% infill density while the rest of the part is at 10%.  It would be just as easy to orient it horizontally.
