Overhang Analysis

A tool, of particular use in 3D-printed designs to give you an analysis of the printability of a part (sans supports). i.e. WRT a starting (reference) plane and direction, it could show you:

1. Floating Overhang areas (like the tip in the middle of the letter "M" when it doesn't go all the way down)
2. Bridge areas (like the underside of a table)
3. Could let you color code the angle of a wall. (Most printers use 45-degrees from vertical as the max) - but some can do more (or less) - depending on the length of the overhang. So maybe show angle and even length of the angle/violation?

I'd see it as very similar to the draft analysis already present.
