The original 5mm diameter axels would not fit in the 4.7mm diameter holes (as printed). So, rather than fix my printing error, I made some tapered axels that fit quite nicely in the holes.


I printed the body at 15% infill, 0.27mm layer height with exterior support.

The rest of the parts were printed at 50%. Only the axels need exterior support, but I plated all the non-body parts for unattended printing.

The original parts are included for completeness.
