So ... a comment for the ones reporting the issue "stl files are incorrect"

First a how I did this to give some context: the owner/creator of this thing did not share the source files of the hing so I imported it into (at that time) into 123D Design and then modified as I could to make it bigger.

I can see the issue of the part being a little over the Z axe but it shouldn't be a problem for printing them out (I have done it several times from that exact STL, also don't even have 123D Design anymore and I'm still able to print this),
just double check on your slicer to set the object into the surface, for example with Cura you can do that by selecting the object, change command to Rotation and then click on "Lay Flat" (although it does it "automagically", I mean I haven't done anything to have it flat in that screenshot)

hope it helps, the source is attached also ;)

Yes, i have the same problem. So the bing hinge is useless... :-(

I agree with the other posting. The big hinge does not sit flat.

Your stl files arent correct. The Objects are floating a bit, which causes the print not to stick and ruin everything :D
