That came out really nice Danny. It looks like the plastic held some fairly tight tolerances. Did you need to make any adjustments or ream the holes at all?

The physical result turned out great! It's a hoot to see the gears spinning.

Thanks guys!

Hi Ed,

> Did you need to make any adjustments or ream the holes at all?

Yeah I did, because of the nature of SLS printing it comes out a bit like fine sand paper with high and low spots, not much though, I had to open the holes up by 0.10mm (0.004") and the gears were a little tight at first but after a few spins they loosened up, I learned a lot about the end result of 3d printing and will make some adjustments in design to suit, if I was to make an injection mould the pieces would be more accurate, I did design clearances into the parts but not enough for printing.

Cheers
