Is there a way to change infill percentage at a certain height?

Recommended Posts

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!
