Twenty five mm diameter is possible

I was able to print the components for a 25 mm diameter planetary gearbox on my 3D printer.  The only question that remained was whether I would be able to scale down the monofilament reel from 42 mm diameter to 25.  

As it turns out, I could.  The bevel gear pair and reel spool sized down quite nicely.  I've never printed gear teeth that fine on a 3D printer before.  These are functional.
