We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Be a good geek -- repair your old Speak & Spell! I have never seen one intact in my whole life time, so I had to rely on blurry pictures from the interwebs to reconstruct the cover.
I admit that the latch is quite fragile, but I had to do a compromise between elasticity and stability... Therefore I include the SCAD file so you can modify it to your printing needs.
I printed it using my Ultimaker, then gave it a small hint with a lighter (the print, not the Ultimaker) to smooth out the corners. It really snaps in nicely.
If you don't plan on using batteries you can use the "002"-version which has a much nicer mechanism, but collides with the batteries.

So what's this mean?
We're sure hotkey would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
