Making RepRap prints stronger without doing a lot of work

"It occurred to me that this could be generalised to make prints that acted like glass-fibre or carbon-fibre reinforced resin for extra strength. Think about what happens if, in the CAD system, you subtract a thin cylinder (say 0.5mm in diameter) from the interior of a part to be printed. When the part is sliced the slicer will surround the cylinder with solid material automatically, making it like a length of strong fibre embedded in a weaker material (the print’s infill)."
