I'm using Tinkercad and want to know hole to hole, but the outside measurements would work. I guess I don't know how to use the ruler tool very well, I'm new.

Thank you for your time.

Ah I gotcha. I don't know crap about tinkercad so I don't have much in the way of advice there. Here are the dimensions via OnShape - the model file is available as a public document over there if you want to take it and change it.

Center to center is 60mm and the angles are slightly greater than 90*. I printed another version where it wasn't raked out quite as far as this one and some of the gears would 'double mesh' and lock up the movement so I had to open the elbows up a little bit.

Great, thank you.

What are the dimensions of the blue piece?
Thank you.

I guess that depends on how you're trying to measure it. Are you looking for printer footprint or center to center hole measurement? I'm not at home to take specific measurements for you but I brought the file into S3D to give you an idea of the dimensions.
