Hello, first time here with articulated print and I have some questions.

How did you print the ball? These supports are connected to the ball and I'm not able to cut them off, I have to break entire bottom of the ball to get rid of these supports. I guess I will have a problem with all balls and joints with these supports. I tried various resolution and infill options with no success.

Anyway, about the assembling: Would be gluing the ball into the socket enough? Are strings optional and not mandatory?
