Have you ever lost a cap for your lovely trusty mp3 player? Then you know that emptiness inside you chest.
Fortunately, 3D-printing technology is here to fill it with fresh melted filament.
Yes, you heard it right - just 10 to 30 minutes after pressing a button and your favourite Transcend MP3 player has a new cap (hat, shoe, coat - use your imagination!).
If you like this little thing, please consider to leave a comment - I would like to know it is useful, thanks!
Print it easy without any supports!
You might still find you need a brim so the cap adheres better.
Depending on your print settings, this thing should be printed for about 10-30 minutes.
After printing just sand it and/or smooth with acetone (for ABS) or any other chemical for your material.
Smoothing step is totally optional, but can make thin walls much stronger.
Version 1 (25.07.18)
I made a cap that fits my player nice, but it has more square form than it should.
Version 2 (26.07.18)
Now it's form is much more closer to the original.
I also have added a little triangle to mark the front side and little "bumps" to lock a cap yet better in place.
What I might do next:
1) Play around with the form so it will almost 100% resemble original. Though I do not have an original and I'm satisfyed with Version 2.
2) Add a little "brim" to the inner side of cap so it would cling the player
3) Think a bit about "lock" - I'd like to make it easier to put on a cap holding a player not straight.
