Kind of nice, but could be optimized to waste less material and be quicker to print.

Made one with Up mini perfect in all ways

I didn't get more than 1mm up before it failed. Looks like the default of 45º 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.

Love the idea, but what do I adjust to get better overhangs? Some things that come to mind are X/Y esteps, acceleration and overall print speed. Perhaps the Skeinforge guys have options that would affect this more than us Slic3r guys.

Active cooling helps a lot.
