Corlayer3d: Corrugated Layering for FDM 3D Printing

A new method for making stronger FDM 3d prints. Most Fuse Deposition Modeling FDM 3d printers like Makerbots are strong in 2 axes but not the third. Frequently the third axes upon which layers are built up are subject to shearing. Corrugating this layer resists shear and can make a 3d printed part stronger.
