First of all, thank you for this beautiful model. But I have a problem about caps. Your caps are concave and when I try to print them, -Their thin side upward- concave side can't printed good and ABS oddments burn my nozzle...

What should I do ? Or, can you upload a flat version of these caps ?

I hope you see this comment.

I can send you a flat version by mail

Same model but just flat right ? Because your caps are tight as I want.
berkay.ulku@hotmail.com If you do that for me, I will be very grateful to you..

i have add the new version of the caps (flat) in the things.

I ve just received your e-mail. Thanks a lot ! I will try as soon as possible.
How can I find the "new version" ? I could not see in your designs section ?

Oh I saw it. Thank you again. Really really thank you.

this fits 608 bearings perfectly. I had trouble with 2 other models. This one is well sized.

What material did you use? I got it printed in clear ABS and its opaque and not good. Love the design though . I have a ceramic bearing in the middle and cheap metal ones on the outer. It spins lovely.

Printed with abs, bearings did not fit, will up the size .005 then see if they fit.

Unfortunately, the way that 3d printers work, tight tolerances will rarely work from one printer to another (different nozzle diameters will change x/y tolerances, different layer heights will change z tolerances, different slicers will round off differently, different materials will shrink differently, etc. So many uncontrolled variables).

An overly tight fit for something like this is preferable I think. ABS files/sands pretty nicely, buy a little file kit at a hobby shop or online and run one around the inside diameter and keep trying until it fits. A decent file kit is a great addition to any 3d printer.

If the fit was too loose, the part is useless (with abs you can add material with ABS slurry, but then you still would have to file it back down).

what's the deal of those 3 outer bearings? are they used for weights?

yes they are, otherwise spin time is much lower

where did you get those metal things that you put in the bearing holes? :)

These are simple aluminum bars cut

What is the size of this? Just wondering if it can fit in an 100mm 100mm 100mm printer?

What is the bearing size? :)

Should be a 608 bearing so 22mm
