MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
First thank you for that great model.
I'm almost finished printing it (only the LPT stators left), and started assembling what could be, but I can't seem to be able to push fit the 6204 bearing on the LP shaft front. I've broken 3 already, trying to force it in place. Same for the smaller bearing on this shaft.
The other 2 bearings went on quite easily (had to use some percussive persuasion but they went on great).
My printer is calibrated, all parts fit together except those bearings.
What do you suggest? I was thinking about putting the bearings in the oven to heat them to something like 100°C, and then push fit them. But seems a bit overkill.
I printed the shaft in PLA.
