Hah, that's awesome, and a perfect blend of the two!

Do you find that the thread prints okay with the piece laying down? One of the reasons I didn't pursue the thread in this piece any further was I thought reliable threads weren't likely running with the axis parallel to the layers. (the other reason was laziness, honestly!)

The print I made was with the piece laying flat, no supports. The threading was a little jumbled at the top but not bad. I am actually printing a test of the piece on edge with the edge closest to the extruder motor gear pointed down to see if the threads come out any better. Using full supports on this one!

Finished the print using full supports and with the inside edge down. The threads were cleaner but even with great breakaway of the supports the overall piece wasn't as 'clean' looking. I'm going to test this new piece on mp MPDM later.
