Changing % Infill while the printer is printing.

Hi Guys,
Please can you tell me if I am able to change % Infill while your printer is printing ?
I know you can make the changes before you start the print, however what code do you use to make the change from 10% to 20% while the printer is printing.

Thanks, appreciate the help.

No.

The tool paths are all fixed at print time. The only parameters you can change are those that don't affect the tool path - things like speed, acceleration, extrusion rate, etc.

Your % infill is incorporated in the GCode file when you do the conversion from STL to GCode using your slicer software, it's one of the slicer parameters. You can't adjust it during a print.

I've been told you can change infill during slicing.
Simplify3D allows your part to print with say 40% and later on(higher up your part) the infill% can be set to any another value.

Slic3r can do that, too.
