I printed it at school and it came out pretty good. The notches on the inserts are a little too small; after attaching to another hexagon, they stay but are still a little loose. Overall, clever design! I will probably make more, I made 5 so far. :)

Thanks for your comment and pleased to hear you like the design The linkage should be a snug fit however what you've described is most likely a slicing issue Not all slicing apps work to as fine tolerances as others. .. and the same applies to printers as well. This design was test printed multiple times on MakerBots but other makes prints will differ... even filament volume can make this fine difference.

about the slow issue. the only way i know of to fix it is if your using repetier host. on the slicer you can click configure and al lot of setting will come up. among them include:shell speed, infill speed, bridge speed, and many more different speeds. you can set them all to your ideal printing speed and BAM, it all print faster by a comfortable margin. it is definitely a great design. i will probably print huge ones and use them to store larger things.

Perfect for my Lego I will make sure my dad prints some!
