how do you connect the hinges?

With a piece of 1.75mm filament cut to length of the hinge.

could I use wire or string

Sure! Feel free to modify it and try new ways! If it works let us know!

the hinges came out funny, but I sanded the inside with a very small drill head and (of course) it on the drill with the drill running (duh). And the outside of the main frame needed sanding to make it fit.

Cool! If you can take a picture and upload it to the "made" section. I would like to see how it turned out!

Hmmm, If I find some time I may.

Together its all very nice and a great project but it took a lot of sanding and adjusting to get everything to fit.

Version 2 has been made and uploaded! Went together very well.

Using Afinia software, my 'lower_latch' loads up showing 138mm x 161mm x 56mm -- which is HUGE!! Can I know the appropriate dimensions? (the other 5 files/parts opened up sized correctly). Thanks!

Its a small piece that was exported to an .STL file set for mm. So I'm thinking your software automatically loaded the model values in inches instead of mm because it thought that it was too small and assumed it should be inches instead of mm.

The correct size for the lower latch should be 5.307 mm x 6.350 mm x 2.233 mm.

Perfect, thanks. Resized to that size and fits perfect. This small part must have confused the software :)

I will start to print Version 2 Beta this weekend. I'll update here on how it turns out.
