Print in Place Dial-Indicator! - For easy Bed leveling!

3D model description

This is my Print in place - Compliant mechanism using Dial indicator! No supports, no assembly, just print and use!
See how it works, and how it was designed, here: https://youtu.be/RFkn6gMkz78

All clearances are 0.3mm/ 0.4mm/ 0.5mm, so most household 3d-printers should have no problems printing it.

Important:
-Use 0.2mm layer height or finer!
-Use a 0.4mm Nozzle
-No Support

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

Update 7/7/2020 - Updated the orientation of the ender 3 dial holder to the correct print orientation.

Well the first one i made i was cutting the brim off and slipped and cut the little strands holding it on, the second one i printed with no brim but later dropped and the strands broke , i guess third time will be the charm and Im gonna design a box to hold it safely until I use it each time lol

sorry for the perhaps stupid question but it must be printed in petg or pla

For some reason it never prints the connecting rods to the pin! I have tried every way of printing this but the three rods connecting to the pin do not print even though the other two connecting to the main body do!.

I'm using simplify3d as my slicer. Any suggestions?
Fantastic work though i'm really impressed with this.

@lolufe Search for dial indicator holder, there are lots of holders out there :)
