I printed out the Isis bird statue from Hyde Park mentioned in a previous thread. I used bronzefill. The neck is slender, and I broke it trying to polish/sand it. Bronzefill isn't cheap, and I'd hate to go with a high infill in areas of that print that don't need it. Is there a way to just increase infill at certain Z ranges? I have a UM2 and have been using Cura.

    Just downloaded pauseAtz.py, TweakAtz.py, swapAtz.py. Placed them into the plugins directory but they're not showing in Cura (14.10 RC4) Is there another step besides copying them into Curaplugins folder that I'm missing?

    I don't recall which version exactly of Cura has problems with plugins but it might be the 14.10 version.

    14.09 is the latest stable version i would use that one if you need plugins
