There were several versions, and these aren't perfect to any of them. But they're close...

I'm 99% I drew them in inch scale, and I think it's roughly 6" x 6"
Whoever is printing them for you should be able to tell the footprint with the correct units.
I don't work in mm, but if for some weird reason they are in mm, they should be able to figure it out.
Trying to get these printed. I was asked the following from a 3D printing group:
What units were used to create the files?
What is the footprint of the files?
Did I have a printer in mind?

1. Print out both parts
2. While they're printing, cut 50, 7/8" pieces of 1/8" diameter brass rod or tube. It's available at hobby lobby in the model train area. You'll probably need 2 packages of 3, 12" pieces.
3.Sand and fill the 2 printed pieces to your liking.
4.Glue the rods in the holes of 1 side only. You might have to redrill the holes, I did.
5.Glue the rods into the other side.
6.Glue, or use filler to close the gap (if any) between the two pieces.
7.Sand and fill all cracks, then sand some more until you're happy with the finish.
8.Mask the brass rods with tape. I used blue painters tape, it worked well.
9.Paint, then I recommend a clear coat as well.
10. (Optional) Find an event where Levar Burton is appearing, and have him sign them!
