Oh dear. I had great hopes for these - they looked so good, but failed to print on my CR10...
1) In the bases there is a hole, exactly where the vertical rods end, making the join very weak
2) the vertical rods are too thin to effectively be printed and then separated from the support mesh that has to be printed to produce the spikes

Abidded - if you remove the base / stands all together and save that as a seperate file (use slice in 3d maker) you can have the mines and vertical rods stand on their own for print - and again, using the slice tool, cut into the mines -- where in the incline in the form is, creating two clean-halves which should produce a smoother- base level print with the sensor joints.

I probably should have taken this into consideration for PLA printers when hosting these files -- but I probably was rushed for time ...

Also since I'm not familiar with the CR10s' capabilities/upgrades, if you download a copy of mix mesher from AutoSketch (its' free) you can go into edit, and set the solid/hollow % in mm to a viewable detail in-screen, that could best work for your nozzle size/infill % and speed.

Also, you didn't mention what size you printed them in ? Perhaps scaling them up might tighten the weak joint you noted !

Appologies, as noted in the description - I printed these on a SLA printer and had no problem. If you really need them bad in a small size -- Shapeways' prototyping PLA might be the trick too!
