I had to desolder the power and data wires between the microcontroller board and the IMU module. They were stacked right on top of one another, but now they will be on the same plane. The holes didn't line up accurately, and the ones under the long Feather board were worse than the IMU. So far, I always have to scale up my prints to 105% because of something goofy in my printer, and that number isn't precise. There were a couple of other issues, like the battery compartment was too short, and there wasn't room for the wires coming out of the vibrator.

I revised my model with the changes, but in the printer software, I scaled the X and Y axes to 104% and the Z-axis to 150%. The massive Z-axis was so that my pockets would be deeper and the bottom thicker. All my components fit snugly, and their mounting holes lined up correctly. Even my vibrator motor snapped into place, and the wires hung out without any stress on them.
