Sure, here's how to do it:
1) Import your STL file
2) Go to Tools > Variable Settings Wizard, add split locations at both 4mm and 5mm. Click "Split Process" to finish the wizard and it will create 3 processes. The middle process is the top 1mm that occurs right below your peg.
3) Double-click on the middle process, go the Infill tab, and enable the solid diaphragm option. Set it to include that solid diaphragm every 1 layer (that will just make sure it's completely solid for that entire process)
That's it! When you slice, select all 3 processes and you'll see you have solid layers below the peg. I use this approach pretty frequently when I need to add custom mechanical ribs within my prints for strength. Thankfully S3D let's you customize this wherever you want, since there's no way to adjust settings like this in other programs I've used.
