This refers to a feature in the printed object where an unsupported flat surface is produced by essentially printing ‘in thin air’. It is achieved by moving the printhead more slowly than perimeters, and bonding the extrudate to either side of the gap so that it is stretched and can cool before it begins to ‘sag’.
