The keychain loop did not print correctly for me. One look at the stl in the slicer and I can see the loop wasn't properly connected.

The pins also came out very easily.

Any way you can post a file with just the pins?

I printed this but I can not ride it, you can tell me how it can be?

What settings did you use? I'm making mine with 3 shells 15% infill at .2 layer height. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Any chance of having these broken down into smaller plates? I would love to print this but I have a Printbot with only a 100x100mm bed.

What was the specific scale you reduced it to?

It was 50%. While the gears printed just fine, the pins don't seem to stick in very well. I've tried increasing their size 5%, but still no avail. I will try again and report what, if anything, works.

Same problem for me. I think the pins need to be redesigned for this scale...

The pins worked great on mine. I was actually surprised that the scale hadn't altered the operation of the gears at all. Looking again at the piece, I think the pins COULD be a little bit tighter -- or maybe a different style -- but it definitely still works.

hmm cant get this one to work either. Im betting its because Im using ABS. Things just dont fit really. It all comes apart when it starts to turn. I know my printer is calibrated well Im not sure what else could be the problem.

Great i test it right now and come back ;)
10% In fill
110 Min with replicator 2, ill try with pla

I hope it works as well as mine does! I'm amazed at how well it came out. I put a keychain ring through the loop and [while I don't plan on using it as a keychain] my students all want one. :)
