This printed beautifully on my Ender 3. Only real issue was the adjusting knob. It was just TOO tight to fit on the peg, so I reprinted it at 101% and it worked just great.

I should add though, that the front and back parts are extremely difficult to print. If printed in the given orientation, they require supports, and the supports just about ruin the part. For the front part, I was able to stand it upright so the face would print better, but it still required troublesome supports. The back, well, that's a different story. I tried other orientations, but no matter how you do it, it requires an asston of supports. It prints best in its original orientation, but the back side looks like hell.

You should consider reworking the front and back so that they are flat on both sides so that no supports, or minimal supports, are required.

Love your work. Truly appreciate it as I aspire to do similar. I'd love to learn from this so I can finish off my design for my calliper. This will be highly educational. Thank you.

thank you for your words! :D is always a pleasure to share to this great community!!! hope to see your work when it's done!

Works fine on my Ender 2, i just rotate it and set 220mm height =)

Very cool, good job & thanks for the download, I'm going to convert it to a model that I can cut from wood with my Glowforge laser.
