Could you mount the Magnetic Linear Encoder on this?

LucidOne on Feb 12, 2011 said:

I was planning on pasting a vernier scale on the side. The 'Magnetic Linear Encoder' might be a little wide. Another option would be a capacitive linear encoder. If there is interest I can rebuild this parametrically in OpenSCAD format.

What was this printed on? Beautiful! (ENVY)

Printed on a Stratasys Prodigy Plus with support disabled. I tried to design it to be printable on a MakerBot/RepRap if you can achieve a 45 degree self support angle.
