I would like to infill a part at 100% for the first 5mm of layers. than after that a 10% infill. Is this possible? It would be nice if that option was in the tweak at z plug-in.

    swap at z plugin.

    https://www.youmagine.com/designs/swap-at-z

    Download it and copy it to your Cura Plugins folder...restart Cura.

    To use:

    Set the model up for the 10% fill you'd like. Save the model to your hard drive. (ex. C:\10fill.gcode)

    Now set the bottom layer up to 100% infill. Go to plugins tab and initialize the "swap at z" plugin.

    Enter height you want the 10 percent version to start (ex. 6.2mm)

    Enter the name you saved the 10% gcode as (C:\10fill.gcode)

    *** Make sure you add the ".gcode" *****

    Layer view doesn't always show updated gcode

    works with multiple gcodes

    Be sure to give pmdude a big thank you!
