Gears are almost out of contact. Both gears should be about 1 mm thicker to get more reliable mesh

The gears have a Z offset of 0.12mm. Reset the Z offset to 0.00 in your slicer.

L'axe de la manivelle ne touche pas le plateau dans le STL. J'ai dû redescendre l'ensemble - 0.1 mm en Z pour corriger. Maintenant, j'ai bien une première couche sous cette pièce.

Just a warning if anyone prints the gears, DO NOT use rafts. I'm not sure if its just how I'm exporting it or my printer, but when I tried printing mine some of the pieces were so small they didn't print rafts, which obviously led to the printer trying to make floating parts. Hope this helps! :)

You're just not slicing correctly. USE rafts when printing small gears. You need to reconfigure your slicer settings.
