Top layer speed

Hi all,

Is there a way to set the speed at which the top layers are printed? I see the bottom layer speed in the advanced tab, but for prints with small tops, it would be nice to set a higher top speed to avoid smudging the print(no need for a wipe tower perhaps?)

What do you think?

    You can set the minimum layer time to zero and then it won't slow down the small tops. But this will just cause other problems (printing on layers that aren't solid yet).

    I think instead the cool head lift feature should be improved such that instead of sitting over to the side waiting N seconds it should retract extremely slowly to compensate for the heating going on in the head. I suppose I should do a test some day first to see if this works.
