Any way to change infill % in different parts of prints?

What I mean is, on a print say with a normal infill of 20% that tapers to a long thin section that is still wide enough that there will be infill, I might want the thin section printed solid for strength instead of 20% infill.  Is there any way to set up the slicer to change infill % in different sections of the print?

Or maybe a way that it can be drawn that would cause that.  I"m using autocad to draw parts.

I'm using the latest repetier-host on a Windows computer.

  • This is possible in slic3r directly. There you can set params for regions intersecting a extra stl that is not printed. Then you slice and load it manually into host/server.

    Can you explain in a little more detail?

    That looks like it would work.  I'll try is later.  Thanks.
