Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

A model made from one of da Vinci's drawings. This is an elegant and simple version of the 'overbalanced wheel', which supposedly has more weight on one side and will spin forever.
A fun model to make, with an interesting history.

3D printing settings

Designed for 8 mm balls, but 5-10mm will work.

Perpetual motion doesn't seem to work, what am I doing wrong?
