This part is a replacement for the height adjustment tabs on the bottom of a keyboard.
It was developed and tested using the dimensions of Microcenter's basic Inland keyboard.
Yes, the angle at the bottom (45) is too steep for the foot to sit flat initially, but I predict it will start to round the sharp over time and eventually rest on the flat. If it doesn't, I'll upload a version with a modified angle.
The pieces print flat without support, and the cut out tabs allow the parts enough flex to snap in during installation. They can also be removed by hand.
Created using Onshape
Part file is public and free to copy/edit if you have an Onshape account:
Changing the length (originally .85) in sketch 1 should change the overall length of your foot without any further adjustments needed.
