    I’ve printed all of the parts but I’m having issues with this bearing. The balls are too close and won’t spin how they are currently designed. Might this just be a printer issue or might the bearing just not work at this scale?

    I printed the bearing at the standard size that came on the SD card of the machine but this bearing is smaller. I didn’t scale it from the file provided for the ferris wheel.

    Please advise!
