3D model description

This is an easy, fun and small print specially for Valentines day. The design features a small (approx. 32mm x 32mm at standard scale) heart with a free moving arrow running through the centre. The arrow can slide back and forth approx. 6mm. The sliding movement of the arrow makes this a unique and novel print that's sure to be appreciated by someone special...

Two versions have been provided as .stl files. One has a hole running through the top so you can thread a string or chain through it. The other is a Key Fob version.

Do not scale down as the arrow / heart clearances will reduce and the arrow will fuse and not slide as intended. With a good slicing app and printed on a well set up machine with good bridging capability the arrow will free and slide with only light pressure post printing (a light lubricant will also help with movement).

IMPORTANT NOTE: This print requires significant 'Bridging' that may be challenging for some machines and slicing apps. On a well set up PLA machine with an effective filament fan the arrow should free by pushing it against a hard surface with light pressure. A small amount of silicone spray or other lubricant will help it slide smoothly. This has been test printed multiple times on several machines with no issues.

Please refer to the print settings and images for additional information... and post images of your prints for others to see.
