    Does it need to be printed in PETG or will PLA work ?
    I really like how you laid out the internal passages.
    It looks really cool to step through the layers in Slic3r !
    The STL file is very clean. Good enough that OpenSCAD was actually able to boolean it so that I could render the guts. That almost never works. Very nice work getting that all in there and making it FFF friendly!

    OK
    I went out and did some research on 3D850 PLA. Looks like good stuff. Can you give us a brand and where you getting it at?

    PrintedSolid carries it, Filastruder's Veracity ProPLA is actually Ingeo 3D870 which should be even better for the horrible things we do to plastics.

    What an incredible design! Gotta love 21st century technology sometimes. ;)
    I don't know if it's an issue with my copy of the file or what, but it looks like the print support around the turret underside wasn't carved away by the barrel carrier threading geometry. Just thought I'd check.

    Edit: It occurs to me that the print support is probably just removed after printing, like all other print support...
