How to change the layer height from a certain height in the print

Hello

In order to print a (lengthy) rod with short threads on both ends (printed vertically) I would like to change the layer height twice during the print.

I would like to begin with 0.1 mm for the thread, then with 0.2 mm (or even 0.3 mm) for the cylindric part and then for the thread in the upper end again with 0.1 mm.

I'm using the Prusa Slicer 2.3.3. and cannot find the mentioned functionality. Maybe I have missed something or maybe there is a trick or a workaround.

B.t.w. I could save a lot of  time because the cylindric part of the rod is long and there are many rods to be printed.

Does anyone have an idea? Thanks!

Roebi

Or you could use the variable layer height tool https://help.prusa3d.com/en/article/variable-layer-height-function_1750

Thank you! I didn't know that either. The Prusa Slicer is full of surprises.
