Sharpest Corner for seams and hopping from part to part

Hello,

I am looking for a solution to being able to design in a sharpest corner for the extruder to go to by design for hiding the seam inside a part so when you jump for part to part, it will specifically find the most acute angle.  Maybe its another type of geometry or manual node you place so the software recognizes it.  Cura has something similar and it works ok.  Looking to use the slic3r in the future.

 

Thanks

PrusaSlicer (based on Slic3r) has a similar but more limited set of options:

You can chose Random, Nearest, Aligned or Random z-seam placement. Nearest and Aligned will try to tuck the seam into corners if any exist on a layer.
