Basic info on how to do it at:

WARNING - The starting/ending Gcode it's the one I use on my machines, IT WILL 100% make the hotend crush with the bedclips, YOU must change it to your machine. If you didn't read this, sorry it's your problem.

Also filament size, settings of the normal process, all, it's customized to my UMO+ with 1.75mm, Gudo ZGE Direct Drive, UM2 hotends 1.75 and custom fans. So EVERY setting will need to be readjusted to your system.
Disclaimer: I share this so users with basic know-how can understand the concept, I take ZERO responsibility if you didn't read this before using the FFF on your printer.

@fredflinston but changing infill extrusion only affects the infill, not the perimeters (afaik?) I use much more this neosanding 2.0 than 1.0 for speed and, ofc easy to use on any slicer. The only part I sometimes mix with 1.0 is that for some travel paths it's better to have a mix if the top layer has weird paths. Anyhow glad you like it!

Really nice S3D hack ;-)

Been trying it out over the past couple of days - FYI, to get a "proper" size perimeter, instead of reducing extrusion width, you can reduce infill extrusion width (as a %), therefore you get a decent and solid perimeter, and the fine pases required during the infill process ;-)
