Another +1 This is especially useful when using flexible filaments when support just wont work.

I made a request a few minutes ago that I think would add the lacking function to print angles better. I can print most angles fine if I turn outline to "0". Reason is, the outlines are printed before the infills and there are times where they print without anything under them and so they just fall. If there were a checkbox to tell simplify3D to print infills before outlines, most of the time there would be something for the outline to touch to and not fall off. Seems almost to simple and to intuitive and makes me wonder why I have to ask for this. It should always have been there to use one would think.

Here's my post it anyone would like to add their comments or "+1's".

Thanks for all of the feedback and interest in this idea! I've documented it as "dynamic outline direction" for our development team to review. I'll keep a close eye on this thread for any additional user interest in 2019!

Count me in as being interested in this as a default way of less setting to think about when starting off with a new profile.....
