Modeled the stem and petal base.  Fixed the petal mount so the pin/slot interface should be right now.  Also made the petals a lot thinner to so they will flex.

The model has some issues, with thorns intersecting the leaf stem, and wire holes not going through, but I'm leaving it for now.  The stem halves are proving hard to print... We will hope for the best and check in the morning.


The stem halves were hard to print, and really suck for cleanup.  I just gave up and I'm ditching them in favor of a 'silly straw'.  They are nice and solid, but formable with low heat as well.  The rest is printed and came out ok.  Two parts left.  The base/servo mount, and the leaf which will be the touch interface (by having magnet wire inside it)
