I am getting a slightly off artefact on the holes.

looks good in S3D

Will be easy enough to remove, but just curious as to what it was there for.

Am printing the jig upside down as this seems to work best for the supports.

Look forward to playing with the result :)

James,

I think this is a bug in s3d, I get exactly the same with s3d.
I did run the models through netfabb and it picked up no problems.
