3D model description

This is my Print in place spring loaded box design! No supports, no assembly, just print and use!

See it in action here:

All clearances are 0.3mm or greater, so most household 3d-printers should have no problems printing it. however, if you suspect you might need a little tuning, I did include a test piece to tune your printer!

I created an Instructables about this project going more into detail about the design choices and tricks that I used to make it work, you can find that here:

Use 0.2mm layer height or finer! (this is due to the overhang being designed for it)
The print should be positioned on its side as shown in the video during printing. (gears down)

Please leave your questions and comments in the comment field, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
Every like is appreciated! 😊
