At first I thought the cover would adapt.

Well, after studying http://www.interfacebus.com/Connector_D-Sub_Mechanical_Dimensions.html , I reverse engineered a bit about how the dimensions depend on the number of pins, and changed the code to match. You should now be able to just change the number of pins. But beware of the fact that the header pins are spaced 0.24mm more narrowly than dsub pins, so with db23, the two pins at the ends of the top will be 1.32mm off in positioning. You can try to bend them, but that's a fairly significant bend (it's about half of the pin spacing).

You need to change width1 and width2 to the measurements of the socket you need.

After changing the number of pins, the design is damaged.
