I tried several different endcaps for my AM8 build (with Mitsumi rails), and this one worked the best.

Perfect fit for the extrusions I got from Rat Rig (Jan 2019). Initially looked a bit too tight but a small hammer soon had them tapped in nice and secure. My Cura settings were Shell 1.2mm, Infill 40% grid, No supports. No scaling. Rotated stl so flat outer face was down. Thanks.

Exactly what I was looking for. :-)

OK, after printing it in several scales I cannot find a scale that would fit my extrusions (also PK8 frame kit). I tried down to 96% X and Y scale but the parts that are supposed to go into the slots are still to large while their distance is getting to small.

Check if you have a Type 5 or Type 6 Slot ;-) The one is 5mm, the other 6mm.. this cap here is for the 5mm slot.

I do have I-Type Slot 5. I found another end cap that fits perfectly though (2493533).

good, i have an i-type nut 6.. so i didnt fit of course ;-) Printed a lot now, but it seems i will create one myself. i really like this design of this one here.
