Intended for modeling.

55 mm long.
the shaft is unthreaded, but machine variance will still probably make the threads on a 8mm nut still catch.

This is useless for anything but reference and model making.

If you have a hobbling rig, maybe use them for practice.


This was tricky to get to print right.
start out hot, then set the extruder temp down to barely extrudable after its a few rows up the shaft.
If you don't it will be a blob of uncooling plastic about an inch up.
It took a fan.
Running it this cool will make a good print, but it won't have any tensile strentgh and will easily snap.
