 Firstly, Thanks for posting the picture. It looks really great in ABS.
Secondly thanks for the info regarding Fill -> Surrounding Angle (degrees) I am woefully underinformed about the settings. any information i get is really helpful.
I did my copy in PLA and there were a few gaps.


80mm/s, 1 shell (2 in total), 0% infill, Gold ABS from A2a Printer.

I do have a tweaked setting: Fill -> Surrounding Angle (degrees): default is 60 I have mine set to 40.  Skeinforge analyzes the surrounding angles and uses some "bridge" layers to fill in voids adding some support.

I printed 3 of them.  The one with surrounding angle set to 60 there were small holes on the roof and around the foundation.  The other two were set to 40 and there are only a few remaining holes!

Looking inside the print set to 60, there are quite a few "spider web" looking bridges.

Print with Surrounding Angle set to 40 is 65grams, 60 is 44grams

 1 shell in print-o-matic,
so one fast inner pass and a slower outer pass.
it does get some really small holes, but i dont
see the need for infill. it uses alot less plastic without.

Hey did not have time today.  Did you print it with 2 shells in total?  So 1 shell in Print-o-matic?

 Thanks! I wanted to make sure the candy / gingerbread theme was clear.
