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.
