My tricycle arrived today! Very Happy The wheels and pedals turn beautifully, the only thing that didn't work is the handlebars, they seem to be stuck in place, there must still be support material in the shaft connecting the front assembly to the main chassis. Any tips on how to remove powder from hard to reach areas?
(EDIT): I did some gentle back-and-forth motions to the steering column, and it loosened the powder, so now the steering works perfectly. It's not as loose as I like, but good enough for now. Cool

Fan-friggin'-tastic! Brilliant work.

Only suggestion I can think of for the powder is to try getting some water in there. I'm not sure how soluble the powder is, but it might help loosen it up a bit. At least it shouldn't be able to do any harm. Razz

Really cute, I love it, I hope you manage to get all the moving parts free and you post up a video of it in action.

Thanks guys, all it took was some gentle back and forth motion to the steering column, and it loosened up. So now it works great! Yes, I will be shooting some video soon to upload.

Thanks Whystler!

Jeff, Clearances were 0.6mm, the minimum Shapeways recommends. The wheel wires are 1mm thick.
