I've had a lot of issues with the alignment pins and the hinges. The pins require a lot of adjustment to get wedged in and the hinges will not move, they're rock solid. I'm planning on sizing the pins down a tiny bit to see if that might help, but I have no idea what to do for the hinges. I've got a .5 nozzle, do you think that could be the issue?

It's possible but I doubt the nozzle width would matter too much as long as the slicer you're using is setup correctly.

These were designed with a part tolerance of .2mm layer height so anything larger than that might require modification. You might want to reduce the pin scale by .1% and see if that helps.

As for the hinges, again .2 mm tolerance and I had to "snap" them free after printing. I used needle nose pliers for one side and snapped the other side free.

Let me know if any of this helps. I'm happy to redesign pieces based on feedback.
