Hi All,

yes long time no hear from me

I have done some research on the "stretch" plugin today and it is actually working quite well.

The naming is "Skeinforge traditional" impossible to understand of course....

So here the settings and what they accomplish...

Increase:

Cross Limit Distance over Perimeter width(ratio) Decrease: Decreases the diameter of innermost perimeter, also adjusting the loops. Extreme (over defaults range) Increase: Pushes outer loops out, does not effect outer perimeter.

Loop Stretch Over Perimeter Width(Ratio) Decrease: Moves the inner loops closer to the inner perimeter not effecting the inner perimeter itself. Increase: Moves the inner loops away from the inner perimeter not effecting the inner perimeter itself.

Path Stretch Over Perimeter Width(ratio) Decrease: 0 is default and minimum. Having to increase this value means probably that you have some miscalibration..) Increase: Extends the fill lines onto the inner loops. (For fixing disjoined inner fill)

Perimeter Inside Stretch over Perimeter Width (ratio) Decrease: Decreases the effect of the increase in diameter of the inner perimeter. (loops not effected) Increase: Increases the effect of the increase in diameter of the inner perimeter. (loops not effected)

Perimeter Outside Stretch over Perimeter Width (ratio) Decrease: Leave at default. Dont really know what this is a fix for. Increase: Creates a slow increase of extrusion flow along the first path. Pulls the startpoint outwards a slight bit.

Stretch from Distance Over Perimeter Width (ratio) Decrease: moves the effect of the increase in diameter towards smaller holes. (Loops affected) Increase: moves the effect of the increase in diameter towards bigger holes.(Loops affected)

Obviously I advise to use SFACT that is easier to use than Skeinforge.
