This is a remix of "Preassembled Iris Box" by emmett. This may be good challenge that how you understand 3D printing.
Since original model was not so fine and I wanted to know how the parts are linked, I reconstructed it in CINEMA 4D.

"NS_Iris_Box_fuji5_8.stl" is a test model to know what is wrong and best settings.

is there any reason as to why you had part of the print off the build table by 0.08mm i tried printing but had a lot of trouble with the layers and then realized it was offset from the build table not sure if you had it like that on purpose or not?

I am sorry, this was my mistake. I do not know when the mistake was made, but I just fixed it and uploaded.

don't be sorry its all good just wanted to make sure i wasn't going crazy haha

Any tips on getting it to spin?

No tips. Just after I removed it from glass table, It spined.

However, I failed 1 time to print it before. It stacked all parts.
So I made 1/8 cut model to know what is wrong, and best print settings for the model.
Also I changed the data a bit, and printed it 2 times.
Then after I got perfect print which have no stack area in faces and pivots,
I tried again to full model.

I uploaded the 1/8 model, so please try it first.

That's one of the cleanest prints I've ever seen! What printer are you using and what filament? I love the matte black!

I am using hand made 3D printer, and 3DXTech CFR-PETG filament.

The filament is best one I have ever used. Fine (up to 0.15mm nozzle), no warp, hard but not breakable.

My printer is small Plusa i3, and unique points are,

  1. Screw drive in X, Y axis.

  2. One Z motor drives 2 Z shafts, through timing belt.

  3. Simple glass table without heater nor height adjusters.

  4. Duralmin(A2017) plates frame, and Acryl enclosure.
