Add perimeter to support structures

Adding a perimeter to support columns would go a long way in improving the quality of support material with lower filament usage. Often the outer edge of the dense support layer is itself printed unsupported and so fails in actually providing any support to the print itself. Adding a perimeter to th...

Improvements to first layer adhesion

Hello! I am finding sometimes that rapid travels between small disconnected areas on the first layer of a print can result in them not sticking down correctly. My first fix was to add a small z hop to retractions and that seems to work well, but its only really something I think I need on the first ...

Excuse the bad description but this is an easy problem to visualize but hard to describe. When printing the first layer on top of infill, the print is effectively overhanging inside the print and will not form the edge of the layer properly.
