so basically don't bother printing it unless you have a two 3mm rods?
and a door frame that is not part of the print?

You need a couple of M3 screws to act as axles. You can drill the axle holes in any piece of wood or metal or whatever. When I designed this, I decided (since I only had a small printer with a 100x100 bed) that it was better to make something whose parts were the size of the printer than make the whole thing fit in that space -- a tiny doorway 100x50mm. Go ahead and contribute to the community by publishing a door frame as a remix.

The ball joint and socket can be printed assembled, or printed separately and assembled later....I've included both the print-in-place "Ball Joint" file and the separate "ball" and "socket" files. If you print the "Ball Joint", you don't need the separate ones. If you print separately, you'll somehow need to get them together. If your print is sufficiently sloppy, there shouldn't be a problem. Or you could try pausing the "socket" print when it's nearly finished and put the ball in place before completing. NB: The ball triangle is assymetric and must be put in the right way up.

Did you print the joint assembled or two parts separately?

How are we supposed to place this on the door? i've just printed one kit and trying to figure it out...

You need a door frame, or at least a post to attach to. The post needs 2 3mm holes, 132mm apart. As per the photo above.
