BTW...I did print the original - (nice tight job on the fit) - I particularly like that the clear tubes actually click in there and hold! :lol:

I'm messing with the one for the right side this morning.....(and the little snake will print the same on both...that's just good design!) :D

the little snake - is this the embossed logo? thats my studio logo, or is it the clasp to keep the door shut?

I will make it if you don't get around to it, had a tight deadline, should be delivered by Monday then I will make it.
Let me know!

The one on the flat door....cool design. :D

I've got time to play with it this morning, but if you want to do one down the road, it will likely turn out better. I'm having to re-work the STL, for some reason Rhino wouldn't recognize your Solidworks file format. Probably not doing it right, but i don't have time to mess with it.

(I hit it with the parametric converter and it turned out fine from the STL....they don't always do that on the more complicated files.)

We'll get something working for the duals. :D

Here's a stable right side one if anyone wants it for the Dual.....It should fit in the upper right screw hole of the X-axis motor, with a little washer, using the supplied screw for the dual setups. (Gave it a small slot to allow for variances in manufacture/printing.)
