These gap filling settings almost completely fill even the finest gaps.

tested in printing and they work well.

my @widths = (1.5 * $w, $w, 0.5 * $w); # worth trying 0.2 too?


I know you said 1.5 is worth using, but I can not find a test case where it actually gets used. And why would it? anything 1.0 and larger gets filled with a single perimeter.

here is what I was using which works better
commit: f18f278
my @widths = (0.6 * $w, 0.3 * $w, 0.1 * $w); # worth trying 0.2 too?


And here are the settings that I find to be the best at not leaving little holes between sizes (though you could probably leave off the 0.004 as that ends up being more a "stitching" action than an actuall filling:

commit: 768d410
my @widths = (0.4 * $w, 0.04 * $w);

0.04 scares me because it will create lots of vibrations. >= 1.0 is needed because we're handling areas where we can't built a perimeter (thus two traces wide). I'll lower 0.5 to 0.4 as per your suggestion. :)
