It can be 3D printed as one piece but that makes it difficult to paint, since the parts on the botton of the port are usually aluminum while the sides are blue or black.

There's an edge/step on the spider web bottom piece that locates it inside the outer ring. The fit is deliberatley tight. File the edges of the step so that it fits. There is a hole in the center of the spider web and matching blind hole in the disk stack. It's used to keep the parts aligned while they are being glued. Use an 8-32 screw as an alignment tool.

I do not know why the corners are as thick as they are.

I've made tbe thickness at the corners the same as the other walls
