The support is needed on both side. I prevent you to crush the cartridge.
I just moved it where it was supposed to be  :D

Has anyone tried these files on a CNC machine? A Teak or Walnut wodden cartridge would be cool! :)

It would at least requires a change in the closing mechanism. Clips will surely not survive.
And since it's a process that remove material, there is no reason for thin walls where not needed.
But that would be cool indeed  :)

I'd remove the clips and glue the two halves together.

New version of the original cartridge shell, proof printed this time  ;D
Zip file contains stl file and freeCad file


Can someone point me the best place to make the shell using this file either directly in Paris or by mail order ?


I have a new toy to test, but I prefer to protect it first.

Hi!


I have a 3D printed case for my C4CPC, thanks to Gerald's design, but I don't know the exact size of the 4 screws needed to close the case. I've been looking online for this information without success.


Could somebody tell me the name/size of the 4 screws needed for the C4CPC case? Thanks a lot!

Update: somebody told me the measurements.Four screws M2 of 12mm. Thanks
