Pile of Failed Emmett bearings

Do not give up, it will (eventually work)
I needed to set the tolerance in the SCAD file to 0.5, and I printed it with a 0.35 J head on a Prusa Printer.
Sliced with Slic3r 0.98 .25 layer

Way too many variables. It could be a printer thats not 100% calibrated, it could be the slicing software, maybe your nozzle oozes too much, and things just "stick" I'm glad you got one to work. welcome to the Fail Pile club. :)
Managed to get a moving bearing at the 3rd attempt. Or should I say a workmate made it move because he wasn't afraid to use brute force :-) The diameter along the loose planets is approx. 52.0. Along the sticky planets it is approx. 51.4mm. Why don't the wheels scale together?

2. Print original STL file
3. wait 1 hour for print to finish
4. Discover you made a solid hockey puck with a nice planet design
5. Blame Slic3r 0.98
6. Try KISSlicer
7. Discover the KISS part of the name is no longer valid.
8. Modify SCAD file to .2
12 repeat at step 8 until print works
Thank you Emmett.
