Instructions

Print with support and a resolution of .1mm, 0 shells, 60% filling.
You may have to resize the pins to actually fit Your holes.
Use the pins to connect the joints and then melt the end up. I used my solder iron for that. Stinks a lot and is as toxic as we all think it is ;)
Deform the pin's end so that the joint is held in place.
Make sure You don't fuse the pin with the joint :)
I have put some plastic washers between the parts.
Please have a look at the pictures...
