MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
It uses two 608 skateboard bearings to help with stability when rotating. There is one stand that holds the model flat, and another angled back 30° and right 20°. I have included a "blank" stem in the hopes it makes modeling your own connection points easier.
I used Simplify3D for slicing. Support needed for the base. Stem needs support for the pin hole, but nothing is required for the top mounting points. Those should come out fine without any support. I used a 7 outline skirt for the stems as well. I printed the pin lying flat so the layers run axially.
