Is there a way in the software where I can make my printer print diagonally?

Posted · Is there a way in the software where I can make my printer print diagonally?

I'm currently trying to print a piece with a a lot of long, thin sections. I'm stuck to which face I have to keep on the bed due to design. These sections have a tendency to break very easily because it prints straight up and down. Is there a way to make it so that my printer moves along these sections diagonally instead of just straight up and down? I have already tried turning the piece diagonally but it won't change anything.
