FYI I pretty much always pull all STLs into MeshLab then hit File/Export mesh. It fixes up most non-manifest errors and also usually reduces the file size by a TON (like 25% of original size). It's a reasonable step to take and the software is free. It's actually all I use MeshLab for though I really should learn more about it.
Both .stl files are fixed now. Sorry about that

Thanks for this! I've had a similar problem with the others. Comment though - Slic3r 0.8.4 tells me that the *_0.25.stl file is not manifest near edge 1717.000-1716.000. I'm not sure how to fix that, and because of the warning, I didn't try to print it. Other objects tend not to print very well when that error pops up. Anything you can do to fix the .stl?

Thanks again!

Instructions

The .scad file is a "quick and dirty" hack, sorry abount that. The .stl file was rendered for the reprap-fab.org heaterbarrel and a layer_thickness of 0.333mm or 0.25mm. You can change it easily in the .scad file, but you need the module “jonaskuehling_default.scad” and “configuration.scad” from the original page at thingiverse.com/thing:18379. I will do it for you if you want.

The Extruder is designed for 9:47 gears. "Normal" gears don't fit!
The gears are from HUGO_improved v1.3 thingiverse.com/thing:22586, an excellent PrintrBot derivate.
