The models were updated to reflect the necessary changes. The sphere on the underside of the lid was printed 50% larger to increase the clearance between the spinner and the upper limit. Most notably a groove was printed in the top of the spinner. The groove was to provide clearance for a screw coming through the lid. In the past the screw was going to come through the bottom.

Old prints on left, new prints on right

Since the groove was being printed in the top of the spinner support material had to be printed as well. This material needed to be removed after printing but left an unusable surface. This surface could probably have been salvaged by grinding it out with a tool.

Removing printer remnants from spinner

A close up picture of the rough texture was taken. Since this groove was meant to smoothly pass under a screw or bolt the surface should have been very smooth.
