My mom is into steampunk items. She found this image online of a steampunk style light switch cover http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e1/ad/e4/e1ade4a39ba9bb0148f90ec21c5a29ce.jpg and asked if it could be 3d printed. This is my version inspired by the photo she provided and gears on thingiverse.

Used the following, I forget which cover I started with when I find the original I will update with that info as well.

This design is a bit odd, the gears are actually inset into the plate, and the printer tries to print that.
So the gears print out hollow, then when it goes to cover them, it cant, cuz its way too far to bridge.
I had support on, but only for where it touches the build plate, maybe if you had it turned on for internal parts it would work.
If the design was redone so the STL file only had the External surfaces, and not the inset part of the gears, it would work.
Look at the layers in Cura and you will see what I mean.

Thanks for the feedback, Looks like I uploaded a older file. I ran into the same problem and fixed it before I published. I will update with the correct file in a few days when I get back to my main PC. Sorry for the mix up.
