Yeah, and I could do that, also. I use A.Desk Inventor for modeling. Do you have any ideas, other than here, where one would look for other model (and source IPT, etc) files? I still don't fully understand this specific site--sources are rarely listed that I've seen, just STLs or source requests, which would make "remixes" incredibly easier for those who know CAD by having the source there for majority of models. I also seem to detect high visible faces, or low polygon count around here. Parts I design in Inventor come out exported in STL as a perfectly smooth taper or cone, where as here, a 50mm diameter taper may have 20 visible connected faces to form the cone shape. Inventor doesn't slow my PC down at all, so I don't know why other programs would not auto increase polygon count. Not meaning to sidetrack conversation. Your point is well taken. That was a quick reply, too. Thank you much for your help.

Maybe I'll just ask for some other sites/models around the Simplify3D forums(?)

But yes, maybe after a print, I can touch it on the grinding wheel in a few places to make it fit. Or, I may be able to design a semi-decent version myself, just very slowly and carefully. ;D
