Hi!

Are the objects oriented in the best possible way to print them?

Cheers!

This is a really great design and I had much fun building it. However, I found one little thing today: I was wondering about the really poor image quality and unscrewed the camera again to try and refocus it. When unmounted, the focus was fine again - so the issue is that on my printed part, the front camera plate pushes onto the camera housing when tightened and causes it to get defocussed. If you ever do a second version, it would maybe be a good idea to make the groove for the camera housing a little bit deeper so the plate will only push onto the PCB and not onto the camera itself. I helped myself with putting some thin rubber foam onto the PCB front side before mounting it which works like a charm.

what kind of screws do you need?

I used M2 (2 mm) screws for camera and arm. For mounting the servos, I used the screws that came with them. For mounting the base you will need M3 screws.
