Smart Infill

Hi,

Another feature request/idea.

Printing without infill is king - it is really useful, fast and most of the time parts are durable and stable enough. I whish there would be a smart infill option that adds support material for areas inside the object.

Look at this example:

Those new areas appear at layer 77 ad go up to the top.

There is no way they will print like this. I have to print with infill (15%) to support them. But most of the infill (+infill printing time) is wasted.

It would be nice if Cura could catch this corner case and would add support only for those areas.

What do you think?
