Exported the model as STL, but it turns out that Cura doesn't like models from sketchup, hence the printed lever without a hole...Did some research and found, which fixes errors in 3D models. Uploaded the model and printed the result, which fits almost perfectly (hinge hole is a bit too big).Conclusion: still need to check that the tire pump works ok (air isn't escaping the tire va
