AFAIK, the design was adapted to meet the specifications of slyparts, but 
perhaps some walls can be made thicker where size is not that critital so
it can be printed with more 3d printers.
What is the easiest way to change the wall size? using the stl files in blender?
Using the non-stl files in freecad?

Well first, I try something very simple, just to tie it to my reprap where
requirements are low.
