I am not sure what you are asking.

Sorry for taking so long. So as I understand it the 4 jaw longworth style chuch you and nottingham82 created has 3 main parts. If each piece was layed flat on a horizontal plane it appears each is about 1'' tall? The 3 pieces combined and when installed at attached to a stepper appear about 3 inches.

I think I get it now. You are looking to reduce the thickness.

have a look at this one. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2626616
danowar (of our awesome forum) took my design and redesigned it. He had sent me the file before he released it to check it out. It is thinner in design and larger. It can handle more sizes while using less filament. I plan on printing his chuck as I think it is a better design as well. It is on the list of things to print for me, just not on the top because I have my laser packed away for the winter.

I think I printed the back piece at 75% to save filament.  it worked fine. The rest I printed full size.
