Hey, sure thing. I posted the Sketchup files and also a 1x4 block I used to calibrate my printer. I was able to change the z height by changing the multiplier for extrusion in slicer. I needed the bigger holes because my prints are still pretty rough :s

Nice part. I am having dimensional problems. The holes are too large & the part is a bit too thick in Z. The holes are all in the correct location, so I can't just scale the part in order to correct for the hole size. Any chance you could publish the source so I could tweak it for my machine?

You are right, Tony's design has only simple 6mm holes, so it can't work when precisely printed.
I fixed his design so it has proper LEGO holes here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2044351
