    Use SwatAtZ. Create a first gcode with no infill. Save it and then change your setting and add the swatAtZ plugin. Provide the fullpath to that gcode including .gcode extension and specify the height at witch you want the swap to occur.

    Doing by hand might not work right at the transition because the E values (extruder position) are cumulative. So at the point where you swap one gcode might say move E to position 1.345 meters and the other to 2.771 meters and it will try to extrude a meter of filament. Or it might unextrude/reverse a meter of filament.
