Hello! I absolutely love this model but am having the absolute damndest time getting the arms to print. Every single time the internal piece (silver part) comes loose. The height at which this happens is inconsistent. I know that the layer gaps are required for the print-in-place movement to occur. I sliced at .15mm as instructed and am printing the arms vertically. Am I missing something obvious?? Thanks!

Hey there and thanks for reaching out. I literally just received the email notification for this message. Anyway, assuming you are having difficulty with the lower arms, I amended the design slightly so the bases of the inner arms are lower so should be more stable on the base of the outer arms shells. The amended STL files are named ArmLeftPart1(amended) and ArmRightPart1(Amended). This should help with the problems you have been having. Let me know if this helps. :-)

Thank you for this thing! Thumbs up to you!

Nope. But certainly inspired by.
