bug cap
the print is OK but could be better with a smaller printer nozzle because of the fine detail. the install method is to squeeze the tube sides and deform slightly then slip on the vent tube. it is secure. remove for winter flying.

since we don't want to reconfigure our printer for a smaller nozzle we don't plan to make these avail unless there is interest. if you would like the .stl file or SW file, let me know.

Rib stamping blanks
Amanda is printing some rib stamping blanks for a test run. She printed these both in the horizontal and vertical directions for evaluation. One has square corners and the other radius corners. Dimensions are ~ 4 x 5 x .75 thick. beefy ASA plastic parts.

Instrument blanks
Another idea for you Steve. I was removing a steam gyro the other day. Had a blank with me but forgot screws and nuts. Can you design a snap on blanks both in 3 1/8 and 2 1/4?
