[Feature Request] Slow down for small diameters

When you're printing a piece that is mostly solid but with delicate connectors or prongs/pins/etc, it'd be really nice to be able to have something like adaptive layers that works based on the size/circumference of the section of the piece it's printing, so if it's printing a section of a part with a very narrow radius, alter the speed?

See the stands in the attached example

    Have you take a look at my PostProcessing PlugIn called 'Bottom little holes Wall speed V2' ?

    I hadn't, but that looks interestingly close to what I was considering, except I'd want it all the way thru the height of the model. In Simplify3d I'd probably just have multiple processes and split the high-fidelity parts out to a separate process.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
