I did not model a new version from scratch. I simply took the STL posted here and modeled a notch in the rear so I could put the cable inside the cavity. As far as the fit of the opening, it's a little tight when printed on my printer so on my next print, I'll again modify your STL and make the opening larger. It may take a little trial and error to get just the right press fit. Thanks again for a great design.

Thank you Anewsome,
Please help me understand, are you saying that you printed the STL given here? or you modeled it from scratch? (I am asking in order to understand your problem with tolerance)

Thank you for sharing the images, it really helps.

What a beautiful design. I saw it earlier today so I made one. I printed it on a Replicator 2 using the high resolution profile at .1 layer height. This print quality really makes this design shine. It took over 4 hours to print at 90mm/s. After the print the plug would not fit though. I had to spend a lot of time filing out the hole so the plug could fit. I think my printer is relatively well tuned so I'm going to assume the tolerance on the model is just too tight. On my next print, I'll open up the hole in the model a bit bigger for a file free fit. I also modeled a small notch toward the rear so I could have a way for the cable to be stored in the cavity. I like it.

Thanks. I see the flat side now. Will post a pic in "I made that"

What surface do you put down onto the build plate to get the best print results. I'm thinking some supports on the corners to prevent sagging.

Hello Mark,
Fourth image with plug, if one puts that side which is flat, it would be easy to print, let us know how it goes :)
