New feature: brim "ear" #4687
When i embed "ears" in my model before printing, it's very hard to remove, because the printing lines aren't along the perimeter of the "real" object (especially if the bottom layer is rectilinear).
So i quickly created an option to create a brim only over "sharp" convex corners.
currently 2 new parameters:
I need to do a bit more work to improve the ordering of the printed gcode.
What do you think of it?
Eh, I am experimenting to use PETG without hot plate ant clue. And I heavely need this. The reason is when you type continuous brim, after cooling the plastic begin shrink and brim too. And brim too begin pull corners to each other to warp corners. What I see, the wider the brim, the worth result and brim get out of plate first and begin pull corners later. And I think the "brim ears" is opposing thing. Ears will only pull corners in the opposite direction and this will bring positive and desirable effect.
