I hope it's me but the small parts don't come out the right sizes, they're all too tight. The lockpin was too tight, too big and too short. The toothweel was too tight and too small, too. Using Makerware and a Wanhao Duplicator x4. (note: with ABS the cuff itself also moves enough to come loose of the toothwheel, maybe introduce a guard?)
What bed material are you using while printing with nylon? Have tried a few different materials and temperatures but I don't get it to stick well enough.
It's gonna vary from machine to machine and even between different build materials. I think I got luck with this one eyeballing the threads from other designs.
I've fantasized about living in a world with a searchable database of materials and engineering standards for easy reference. Getting the minimum thickness and step without shrink in glass filled nylon injected plastic would be useful data.
