This could be really useful when attached to other things. Do you have a design file?
Yes, I have. Currently, there is .05" difference in the ball and the socket diameter.
Have you printed one yet?  How much slop is there in it?

Instructions

When printing in ReplicatorG, I used no raft but full support with a 15% infil, .2 mm layer height and 2 shells.
After the print is complete, knock out the support material in the lower channel.
