It prints! Very cool design, I really like the pattern that it makes.

Unfortunately, with my default settings the small triangles of the inner two layers are too small for skeinforge. I had to scale x and y by 140% before it would actually put any material there. Another option would be to lie to skeinforge and set perimeter width/thickness lower.

You may want to
try replacing those triangles with parallelograms and increasing the unit size slightly to compensate.

My print didn't turn out so great so I definitely want to give it another shot when I get a chance.

Done! OpenSCAD has been modified with an adjustable "buffer" to add more material to the little triangles. New files are uploaded (they have v2 in the filename). A screenshot of the new version is also uploaded. :)
