Support material miracle

While playing around with the PLA, I (Vik) noticed that the PLA can be formed into loops that would normally require support material. It might be possible to use the rapid hardening properties of PLA to build objects without support material in some cases:

LOL! HDPE and HPP both do that as well. :-)

I don't know if the firmware for Zaphod allows a coordinated xyz trajectory to be plotted. Right now Tommelise can only do xy trajectories and z's separately.
Just 2 axis. There's a bug in the cooling period that shows this that I must fix one day...

Vik :v)
