All that's left is the Roomba attachment xD

This is a thing of beauty. I love it!

Is anyone else seeing the tear in the lower right corner when looking at the front of the hitch face? https://www.screencast.com/t/BZ2i75ylgq

Do you have solidworks cad file

Unfortunately I do not. All parts started as Stl. files and were exported and posted as such. But you may to be able to find a similar mine on GrabCad. Sorry.

Is is up to scale with the real thing?

Hitch specs, yes. But I'm not familiar with +40yr old vintage antipersonnel mine dimensions! Pretty sure that's how one ends up on some kind of watch list! But, you are welcome to research and share, and I will adjust the mine scale to historical specs!

Have noticed any kind of warping or melting for this sitting on your hitch?

No. It gets fairly hot here in Charlotte, Nc in the summer and it has held up perfectly.
