The new Cura will be able to do this. Hopefully it will be available as a beta soon. It's codename is "pink unicorn". I think some people have tried it already. I guess you could download all the source files from github and build all the pieces yourself.

    Are you sure about it? I thought Cura PU will be able to do different infills for different objects, but not a variation of the infill within one object. But maybe you know more than I do or I do not remember correctly... :unsure: Daid will certainly let us know it tomorrow... B)

    edit: I think a beta is not something to expect within the next few weeks...

    Slicing up multiple g-code files of the same object and merging them together is not as easy as it sound the extrusion value is relative to the previous extrusion movement (G1 command with E component). So when just putting 2 parts together your first extrusion movement could result in either a retraction or over extrusion. But still is a nice idea which I'm current exploring current have AWK script that can put 3 gcode files together as one. Been able to print a rose starting with a layer height of 0.3 then switching to 0.2 layer height and ending with 0.1 layer height without above mentioned extrusion problems.

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
