On Makerbot's app, the .STL file only prints the ball, even using the mousetrap_connected.stl file. Please advise?

Sorry, I don't know. I don't have a makerbot and haven't used their app. Does it print mousetrap_no_ball.stl correctly? Could you print the ball first and drop it in while printing that?

Okay, it printed mousetrap_no_ball correctly, and I dropped in the previously printed balls in the middle of the printing. The balls were very snug though, so I'm playing with scaling the balls down to 90~95% and reprinting them. As is, they do not freely move around inside the trap. The trap fits perfectly on the bottle though!

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry it was too tight. Unfortunately I have only my own printer to go by when deciding how much space to leave. I've uploaded some new files with a ball 95% the size from before. I know you can just scale the one you're using, but hopefully it will help some others who are able to use the all-in-one versions.
