Great model, but some improvements are in order. The cone was not printing for me, it was having adhesion and curling problems, then I realized the overhang on the base and in the groove is quite a bit more than 45°. I increased the diameter of the base (the outer ring of the first layer) to 28.5mm as well as the innermost mesh of the recessed ring near the bottom of the cone until it looked like about a 45° overhang. Another issue is the booster pegs are about 9.5mm in diameter and the holes in the base are just under 9mm diam, so they don't fit without drilling out the holes a bit. Also, the tops of those peg holes are flat so you may get some sag inside if your printer doesn't do bridges really well. There's plenty of room to make them 45° cones inside so there's no risk of that. If printing in PLA these tolerances are more important since PLA isn't as flexible.

Fun! I love the look of this thing!

Why not rotate the STLs into printable orientation and re-upload? Your explanations are clear, but why not eliminate the step for anyone printing?

thanks! very true, will do when i get a minute!
