Hello all,   I was just curious if anyone was home 3D printing oscillator gears yet, and if so, what material works best for greased gears that become warm. I have heard nylon is one of the more durable and affordable 3D printing materials, but that it can dent and become more malleable when warmed up under friction (instead of cracking or breaking). I am always so dissapointed when I have a fan that is missing teeth on the oscillator and have to only use it as a stationary fan. Who has tried this and had good results with it so far?

-Thanks!
