Does anyone knows what the ideal print adjustments are for an Ultimaker S3, to print a ball bearing? And what could be the minimum space between the housing and the ball? Notice that the shaft diameter is 20mm.

    Try engineering profiles?

     

    This could be very interesting for testing and demonstration toys. But I wouldn't do it for functional parts in equipment. The balls are very likely to go sliding instead of rolling, wear out soon, and even melt if printed in PLA.
