Lego Axles by Caboose Mar 27, 2013

Description

Lego axles in the most popular sizes available, including:

2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12.

These are all measured from real Lego axles and printed to check if they work correctly. They do.

The ones printed in ABS seem to be the best choice strength-wise. I sheared a few original axles making torque devices out of gears and axles, and the ABS is best. However, Taulman's 618 nylon filament also works wonders for these.
