Good job! It looks great! :D

By the way, I've published some new features for the lamp, and submited a tutorial on how to make the lamp on Instructables: https://www.instructables.com/id/Articulating-LED-Lamp-REMIXED/

It's competing on Instructables Remix Contest, and it would be great if I'd have your vote. You can find the "vote" button in the end of the tutorial, or you can search my entry on the page of the contest:

If I print the parts with an Ender 3, the nuts won't fit on the thread. There are several ways why the original doesn't fit. Either your 3D printer has too much tolerance or the used filament shrinks too much. Heat from the nozzle will also have an influence.

What have you changed? Have you made the nuts smaller or enlarged the arm?
Depending on the size, I can test what I need to make bigger so that I can screw it together. Otherwise I would have to throw it all away.

Thank you

Hey sorry for my late reply. I put a fair bit of tolerance in the thread to be able to screw it even if your printer over-extrudes. Did you print both the male and female threads from this remix? They will not fit the original files from igorF2. All the parts available in the download section of this remix are different from the original design and need to replace the originals.
