Hi there! Complete system noob here!
For the last month or so I’ve been trying to design the base for a CCBS/System compliant hand, and as you can see above, I’ve completely ripped and stitched on mixel sockets
As mentioned earlier, I am pretty much new to system outside the standard brick and plate so I need to know a bit more about the sockets used for ball joints on sets such as mixels.
Q1: Would applying fill material to my part prevent the thumb sockets from expanding properly?
(These questions are more for someone with more experience with 3d printing than I have.)
Q2: Since I’m probably going to run a test print on PLA rather than ABS, would neglecting that fill material increase the likelihood of the far left/right finger sockets to break off of the main piece
Q3: I know that PLA is rigid compared to ABS (or the stuff that Shapeways uses,) does that mean that the expansion required of these finger sockets to be usable will be too much tension/pressure for the PLA to handle?
Answers to these questions are going to be very much appreciated.
L;W;H - 27.511mm x 20.352mm x 8mm
Main Socket: Diameter 10.20mm (From earlier versions of this project, I know this socket works.)
Finger/Thumb Socket: Diameter 6mm
