*You have been warned: On painted floors, these things are probably better for ice luge training than skateboarding. For a solid grip, keep them on carpet, wood, concrete, asphalt, etc...*

***Printing*** Print hot and thick. 3mm+ walls all around, 20% infill. To speed things up I changed my nozzle size in Cura to have the machine put down 0.6mm beads instead of 0.4mm. For extra printed freshness, print with all the filament scraps you have laying around, so that they come out with a little color in the mix. Still testing the best settings to make these things totally rugged.
