    Very cool. I'm looking forward to playing with this. BTW, I find that using a NPT tap to clean up the threads is easier than trying to get the printer to make the threads perfect.

    I generally concur - cleaning up the threads with a tap is preferred, and that still has to happen with the low profile cannon. However, the 1/8NPT thread at the bottom is tapered, and Fusion 360 chose the narrowest possible section of taper for the mesh. So when I printed it at 100% scale, my tap would not fit, and tore up the threads instead.
