Speed up Skeinforge slicing with PyPy

DIY 3D Printing

PyPy is alternative to standard Python distribution and it can speed up execution of all python code, like skeinforge.py used for slicing. Here is video showing differences in performance when slicing in ReplicatorG with skeinforge.py. PyPy is much faster and clear winner.

Avoiding voids

HydraRaptor

The thinnest practical wall you can print, (with Skeinforge at least), is two extrusion widths wide. I discovered that if you make a wall even thinner then Skeinforge still lays down two paths equal to the extrusion width but places them closer together. FFF skeinforge

Slic3r is Nicer - Part 1 - Settings and Extruder Calibration

RichRap

In Skeinforge and using Sprinter firmware I always used 16mm/s but after switching over to Marlin Firmware and using Slic3r then 30mm/s is possible and makes a very positive impact on quality and print speed and also (usually) allows a smaller reversal length.

Round robin

HydraRaptor

Skeinforge seems to always go for the nearest island, so when it finishes a layer it starts the next layer on the island it has just done and revisits the others in the reverse order. That also makes the Comb and Tower modules of Skeinforge redundant. reprap skeinforge I have been making a few small tweaks to my host software to improve quality recently. One such tweak is the order in which islands of an object (or objects) are visited.

Tip top top layer tip

HydraRaptor

It behaved differently to HydraRaptor, but since it was a different bot and extruder and I had also changed to a different type of ABS and updated Skeinforge it was hard to work out what the problem was. That is the way it stayed until very recently when I made a discovery about Skeinforge.

Hollow printing

RichRap

When you slice this is what you may see with '' Infill in direction of bridge'' enabled or disabled - Skeinforge sees extreme over-hangs in the model which forces it to create the infill. fill hollow printing Skeinforge

Slic3r is Nicer - Part 2 - filament and printing

RichRap

I print one set of links at a time at 80mm/sec with Skeinforge. This is still very fast for such a small object, but Skeinforge automatically reduces the time to print per layer so it always takes a minimum of 12 seconds to do layers (that''s quite slow with such a small part).

Why slicers get the dimensions wrong

I got my rectilinear dimensions correct with Skeinforge nearly three years ago and blogged the maths here. I have tried Slic3r, Cura and Kisslicer but none of them print the Mendel90 calibration part the right size, so I have stuck with Skeinforge.
