I reply your question in public, i think it could be usefull for more people...
>> Must say i really admire your work, everthing is exellent!!
>> Im new to 3d printing and trying to learn. Im trying to make one of your weekly cups and have some problems. Im trying to make: thingiverse-production.s3.amaz...
You don't need the php file per sé. Since I am not a programmer, but can read and modify script a bit i used php first, because Erik had some samples in php i could use. Then I got some help to make the Python script and moved to the py scripts. Those are most up to date.
>> I've loaded the vaas02_77mm and i've tried to activate the skew in cura
under plugins but nothing happends.
Define nothing happens... You won't see a proper preview, you have to check the generated gcode if somthing is modified...
>> Should i use the skew.py that is 5kb
My version is around 4000 bytes, or 5kb, don't know about 2 versions...?!
>> What 3d program are you using to make those models? Sorry for taking your time and my bad english :)
I use many different mostly open and\or free programs. The weekly cups are made in Blender, other cups Sketchup, but sometimes also Meshmixer, Rhino, OpenScad or not so open Solid Works et cetera, depends on the object.

With my very limited knowledge of php i used Eriks script to postprocess gcode, changed it and it did fit my needs. But.... Cura supports a really nice feature called plugins, so if i was able to make a python script i could insert it in Cura as well.
Place the skew and wave script in the cura plugin folder. Start Cura. Then you see the plugins and you have several options. You can run the script also stand alone on the command line with the options
Maybe important notice: the stl file of the cup is pretty low res, that would mean not so many 'points', to make sure you will have enough point, change the value in dimension.py [somewhere hidden in the skeinforge/cura folder system] maxDistancePerMove to '1' or whatevere value you like. This chops all gcode longer than 1mm.
CAUTION: i am not a programmer...!!!! if you are, please check the script and make it better..!!
