Since it won't be very heavy, when you use it, do you clamp it to a table? Any idea with the default settings how big of a hank this will hold?

What is the best way to print the shaft? I assume laying down with supports? I don't see how it would be able to print standing up since there are 90 degree overhangs on the little decorative knob it has.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how much infill to use when printing these? I am going to make this for my wife as a present

Just an an FYI - the top layers of the arms are printing with a lot of extrusion gapping into the infill. I've tried it on two different printers, three different filaments. Even at highest quality, up and down on temp, up to 110% fill, they Swiss cheese. Everything else printed beautifully, so the infill may need to be denser. My next attempt will be to print the arm on a side instead of flat. It's functional with the Swiss cheese (I filled holes with wax to smooth the surface and to keep the arms from snagging fibers). Details of machine, settings, filament and photos on request.

thanks a lot for the feedback, I will try and tweak the files a bit sometines a fraction of mm makes a huge difference

YW_Receiver.stl is incorrect is missing a gap it only has three

Damn !!! You are right, I'll fix this when I come back home ! Thanks for the feedback !

No problem. I didnt realize it until i printed it lol =p
