Hi, trying to print the SCREW_TOY_BODY_ver2 using Makerware 2.4.1 and the model will not slice properly. It appears to be having difficulty with the threaded section at the top and generating an array of triangles.

I used CURA instead to avoid this problem, anyway the parts doesn't fix, the screws are too loose, any ideas??

I printed the 9 screws and the large nuts. The large screws and nuts work well together. I'm printing the SCREW_TOY_BODY_ver2

and even though it's still in progress I have found that only the large and small screws fit correctly in their holes. The medium screws just push right into their holes without needing to be turned. Anyone else have this problem?

Unfortunately the print for the screw toy body isn't going well because the cooling fan is causing some layers to split.

I have same problem, I printed the body and cap and they don't fix, and the small screws are too loose, i had to printed it at 1.07 scale

Hi just printed but my cap does no stay on te body! They dot really fit! The cap can be pulled of easily

Hi phageis.Thank you for your print!
I have few questions.

1)Did printed with "SCREW_TOY_BODY_ver2.stl" file?
2)Did printed in layer height?

My?prototype is OK,,,
Thank you for information.

Yes I printed version2 an an rep2x in ABS With

I printed with MakerWare 2.1 "Medium" defualts (.27mm/10%/2 shells/temp 230/speed 80mm/s) on a Rep2 with PLA and have the same problem. If I get it started just right, the cap will screw into the threads, but I can easily pull it off.
