StackableWith the optional stand, models are stackable, so you have no excuse to collectand show them off!Stackable stand with optional model plate

Tiny small printsThere are some very small prints that will test your printer. I suggest printing them at 0.1mm layer (fine setting).

SupportsI had problems deciding if my design should have supports or not. I even printed a first version without them but I finally I decided to design it with them. They are simple supports and your favourite slicer shouldn't have any problems with them. You can test your slicer and your printer with different kids of supports, distances, infills, etcIn my example I have:Platform only supports25% support infill1 vertical separation layer0,25mm horizontal offsetSupports still need to be removedWith removed supportsSupport example (upside down)

Flexible filamentsPrinting with flexible or semi-flexible filament is a great way of testing your printer capabilities. These wheels are perfect for this because they are quite small and you can try different settings without wastingtoo much filament.Tyres are designed to be printed with flexible or semi-flexible filament in order to fit the bearing.Flexible bumpers (optional). I printed a set of flexible bumpers just to try but I normally print them with PLA.

Adhesion and layer comparisonYou can print with or withoutraft to compare results. On small prints like these, raft can be useful but bear in mind that you'll have to clean the print after. You can also compare top and bottom layer.

Different materialsYou can try different materials, colours or even dual color prints!

Tight fit, screw directly to the plasticI normally use bolts without nuts and screw them directly to the plastic. This is a good way to try if your printer is well tuned!
