Still utterly fails the test of "why make life difficult for no apparent gain" test.

Frankly, it *smells* like male bovine excrement to me.

Now, although I think it unlikely there *might* be a justification for **applying** the fabric at an angle while there's none that I can think off for printng it that way. Think about which directions are easiest to tear fabris - answer, straight along warp and weft, parallel and at right angles to the length of the fabric. Angled, it *might* prove stronger, and IIRC this was actually why some makers tried diagonal application. Angled it might also increase sheer strength of the entire wing structure.

Still, 5 degrees? would it be enough to help? and *printing* at an angle would do sod all.
