Whew! After a solid 2hrs of removing supports and 4hrs printing finally got one printed out that looks alright at 60% scale. I wanted it keychain sized for fidgeting with and budget reasons. Surprisingly considering how coarse the thread is, even though I removed ALL supports, it won't rotate, the tolerance between the gears is just too small to allow enough free rotation at 60% scale. I'd need hands made out wrenches to get it to rotate correctly, even with the gears in the correct conformations. Still, really cool!
