I printed this in PLA on my Makerbot Gen5 and it won't fit together. :(
The center gear and the three planetary ones seem to fit OK on the hub, but that sub assembly won't go into the ring gear.

After some testing with PLA I made a conclusion that you need to reduce extrusion of PLA to 80-85% to have gears fit. PLA extrudes more that expected. Have a look here https://all3dp.com/common-3d-printing-problems-3d-printer-troubleshooting-guide/#Over-Extrusion

hi. tried to build this cause it looks like a great planetary design. unfortunately 2 of the parts are not on the build platform. can you upload separate STL files or move those parts to the platform please? thanks!

I've just uploaded the fixed file. Tell me if it's all ok ;)

I'll update the fixed file as soon as possible when I'll come back home
