Hi Mike

I just made your design this week's RepRap competition of the week http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?282,138223http://forums.reprap.org/read.....
Hope you approve. Look forward to seeing some nice copies!

The dimensions might be slightly off - I eyeballed it in Opescad with the STL files you posted up. I don't have a program that does dimensioning installed so I lined them up the best I could and unioned them with a sphere. It could be my dimensions were off slightly resulting in the less than perfect fit. Mine came out pretty good - but it's small and did require a little clean-up with sandpaper on a couple of the faces. I like your write-up! Keep up the good work. My ToM is down right now. About 6 mos ago I dropped my HBP and snapped off the connector...and did a less than optimal repair. It finally broke loose again resulting in almost melting the connector when it shorted. Fortunately I have a spare HBP - I just need to mount it and get it leveled out...unfortunately it's slightly warped and causing me some issues.

What a brilliant idea :-D

I'll have to give it a go.

I guessed on the dimensions in the STL and put them pretty close. It could use a little tweak more than likely.

I'm surprised how well that worked actually. I love it!
