    Change the units value for 'free shipping' items to 0 and only they would be free.

    You can have 28 bands in an Advanced shipping table, so can add intermediate entries. For example, if thirty $3 items push the actual shipping cost up to $5, the table in my last post could become

    The first 29 units are charged 3 the band
    The next 70 units are charged 2 the band
    The next 9900 units are charged 5 the band
    The next 990000 units are charged 5 the band
    The rest units are charged -15 the band.

    This retains the idea that the shipping cost is based only on the most expensive items to ship, ignoring cheaper items, but moves charges nearer to reality.
