Hi,

Great to finally see something new in terms of support material, but I don't think this is going to work very well. The primary reason is that these are just a bunch of lines. If they fall (and they will!) you're entire print is ruined. It also causes massive amounts of retraction that adds to the total print time.

In good old Skeinforge, there was a similar support material, but it was clever enough to connect the lines at the ends. Not every end, but every second, so that the extruder did a single zig-zag motion to create the support. This enabled you to keep a higher speed while printing the support.

I'd very much like this feature changed to implement this support in the same way Skeinforge did. Being able to set how narrow/sparse to make the support would also be nice.
