New stuff.

Also if there is a space between the raster and the perimeter you can
adjust the air gap. Most of this is in the FDM manual.

Old stuff

Sometimes you can adjust the order of the build so the raster or contours
(the center portion of the part) builds first in order to create some
support for the outside overhang. There is an option for contouring from
the inside out (in-out) that you should investigate. Also you may need to
add some additional support.
