I didn't get more than 1mm up before it failed. Looks like the default of 45Âº is the most overhang I can do.
Well, of course that depends on your printer and the software you operate it with. Some of the main settings have you already mentioned. There a lot more and you can't get around experiencing with the different settings of the software.

Update 2012-01-06: I was asked to modify the height of the object so here you have of two versions now:
overhang_test.stl -> 27 mm height
overhang_test_half.stl -> 13.5 mm height
Update 2012-02-06: I printed this thing (small version) on my new printer which is an Ultimaker. Right out of the box (Cura standard settings) it handles all overhangs very well except for last two (65 and 70 Â°). It's *possible* to print it, but the overhangs get "rippled".
