Thank you so much my battery case broke and the only way I could use it was to hold the batteries in place. Thank you

Ohh yeah, it will definitely fit, I use it with mine.

I just want to make sure it fits :)

I printed it vertical as flat the hinge seems weaker.
Hope it works out for you.

Is %1000 the proper size of the original cover?

I recon about 97%, not sure why you need it that accurate but it looks pretty good if you print print high.

Otaku, could you use your elite skills to make a gba and a n64 expansion slot cover? They are all very similar and I stink at 3d modeling. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have a physical cover so it would be hard to get the measurements for making something that will fit. For these battery covers even thought I had a spare one to work off of, it took me about 3 prints and messing around to get the final one to work.

Very nice! I was wondering how do you copy those relative complex curves and bends to your 3d modeling? I want to make a mount for my garmin etrex 20 gps but it has slight curves in different angels. I have no idea how to add these in my model. Do you have any suggestions?

I started making the easiest shape in Illustrator. After that brought in to 3D Max and modeled from there. I used a caliper to get every measurement. I printed the shape from illustrator on to paper to see if the shape fits. For the curvature it was really just measuring the battery cover from its lower possible point (without counting the hight of the clip) and measuring how high it bent. Trial an error bending it till it seemed right in the 3D model.

After that I printed a low quality in my replicator 2 for fitting and checking what I missed.
Took about 2 more prints to get it right.

Hope that helps.
