I ran some more skinning tests this evening, its definitely got promise. This picture shows a 0.4mm carved cube skinned at 0.2mm in the middle. On the right is 0.25mm carved cube and on the left a 0.4mm carved cube for comparison. The outer shell feels very smooth to the touch. It would be good to transfer this to all top surfaces too. It would look better and may make closing PLA structures easier, mine always seem to have problems closing fully.
