Summary

The original pins for the Micro Gear Heart didn't fit all when printed with PLA, I've modified the pin geometry so they fit correctly now. Being so small, you'll need some needle nose pliers in order to insert them.

Instructions

You'll need a total of 8 pins to complete the micro gear heart.

The source file I modifed is included. You'll need to download the rest of the source files from the original thing in order to use it.

In the image, the top pin is the original, the lower pin is the updated design.

using pla-any suggestions for settings? %infill or # of Layers?

I tried this print today and the pins don't fit. (it totally could be an error on my part, as this was my first time 3d printing). any idea on what i could've done wrong or how to make it work?

Worked almost perfectly for me

Yeah, you're right. On my heart gears design, I forgot to mention that the design was optimized for ABS, not PLA. PLA shrinks a different amount than ABS when extruded. Oops!

Yeah, I noticed that too. I was printing in ABS. I just thought it was my setup and I edited the stl.
