Square Chain Mail Armor: Back From The Abyss

After a Slic3r commit fixed the bridging regression, I ran off chain mail patches to celebrate:

Square Chain Mail Armor - 3.3 3.5 4.0 thread bars

Square Chain Mail Armor – 3.3 3.5 4.0 thread bars

Two more Scli3r improvements calculate thin-wall and gap infill based on the available space, then vary the extrusion width to make the answers come out right for a given nozzle diameter. As a result, infill between close-set perimeter walls works much better than before; some of my long-held assumptions became invalid.

The only differences between the sheets: tweaking the BarWidth and SheetSize parameters. The links recalculate themselves around those values.

The OpenSCAD source code as a GitHub gist:
