The problem is that not all machines or slicing apps work the same and filament is another variable These have printed really well on my MakerBots ' and lots of other people have had great results too...

The fact is this has quite fine tolerances to work well so you need a well set up and accurate machine plus a good slicing app.. However, to overcome your current problem it sounds like the clearances are printing too small so try again with everything scaled up 3-5 % uniformly . This should increase the clearances sufficiently to make everything slide as they should.

One more thing... if you're printing with ABS you may need to scale it up a bit further as it shrinks when cooling which reduces size / clearances. It's just a matter of working with your machine to get it printed well... all the best!
