the only problem I had was the pieces to hold the watch on the bottom were positioned to low and it wouldn't charge, so I had to heat them up and move them so it would charge.

Does this work for the gen 4 watch?

I only have the Q Explorist, I have no way of checking if it works with other watches.

Unfortunately, without any support for the spring support, that keeps toppling before it even gets to the spring area, which then turns those into a mess. I'm of the opinion that that entire flat where the charge plate fits should be a second piece that is printed flat on it's back, then both pieces assembled post print. The rest of the print came out spectacular - much better than in these photos, so just a little rework could make this a great design. Great start bud!

Thanks for the suggestion. Try using Cura's tree supports on the model without supports. That seems to create supports that reach the springs and both arms with no issues. You may need to use a brim and set the support placement to "Touching Buildplate" to avoid support between the springs and the body, which would be hard to remove.

As for the quality of the print, I am still dialing in a new HyperCube Evo that I built. It still has some quality issues I am trying to work out.
