Slow down printing when layer times are short

When layers are printed very quickly (because the area to be printed is small) cooling needs to be increased. This can be done with the cooling fan, by slowing the printing time, by pausing between layers, … . I need this feature so that I can properly print a part that looks like stem glassware. The wide sections printed well but the narrow necking section didn’t cool enough before the next layer was deposited.

Yep - We’ve just had another request for this.

I’ve popped it down as a feature request for a new update.

Thanks for the feedback!

Just to add a picture to this.

This is the XYZ cube printed with more or less the default CR10 profile.
I turned on cooling at layer 20. This difference is quite significant.
