1) Thanks thanks thanks for adding this!!!! It's super useful!!!

 

2) It's all too easy to set this to a terrible number. I propose it it forced to an integer multiple of the spacing. Perhaps just a spacing factor (1/4,1/3,1/2,1,2,3,4)

2.6 Support Distance / 1.2 Initial Layer

2.6 Supp/ 1.3 Initial Layer

 

Notice how the integer number doesn't leave support basically touching 1 mm^2 over the whole layer.

 

3) Changing this setting does not invalidate the slicing - you can't hit "slice" without first triggering it by making another qualifying change (such as turning on-then-off-again "use towers").

 

 

VERY excited about all the changes in 3.5.
