I can't tell if it is support material jamming it or if I made a mistake somewhere and let two parts overlap.
I've searched it a number of times, and I've broken the physical print open.. the bicycle chain flexes properly (even though its only 1mm across!!!!!) and the big gears seem to be free to rotate.. there is still something that I'm missing.

As I said.. this "links box" is to animate a micro-scale train layout... on a model train layout... :)
You've seen many other scales here on Shapeways, 1:87, 1:160, etc.. this one would be 1:10560

Many discussions held between model railroaders is which Local Hobby Shop (LHS) they believe to be the best place to buy materials. Many LHS have model train displays within their shops. I thought.. why not put a LHS onto my layout.. with a working layout?

The desire is to make a moving version of this: (click to see the model in my shop)
