Layer pattern options

It seems that layers are rotated 90°. However, research suggests that helicoids are going to be stronger. If there are 4 layers on the bottom of a print, would it be possible to have a helicoid option where each layer is rotated 45°? Has anyone tried something like this?

    45 degrees sounds much too much if you want a helicoid.  Maybe 1 degree rotation?


    Also stronger in compression forces?  Or tension forces?  Usually the issue is tension and usually the best way to increase strength is to make the walls thicker.

    See the setting "Top/Bottom Line Directions", and set it to [45,90,135,0] (don't forget the brackets)
