This is a back cover for the X-Lite Pro that contains a holder for a magnet inside to give the X-Lite Pro a spot for another magnet to attach to. This was designed with Fusion 360 and has the same slide on mechanism that the original cover uses to attach to the X-Lite Pro.
I use a magnetic switch for my DLGs to turn the receiver on and off. The Taranis and X12S had a screw on the back or front that I could use to store the magnet that I use to turn the receiver on and off. The X-Lite Pro does not have any good metal parts exposed for the magnet to hold onto so I decided to make my own external module cover to attach the magnet to. The cover has a magnet built into it so that I can store the other magnet against it.
This requires a 6 mm x 3 mm round magnet.
This might work for an X-Lite and X-Lite S, but I do not own either of those to test this with.
Now that I have a basic design that fits the slide on mechanism, I will likely create more covers that incorporate other things like a wind streamer.
There can be differences in printers so if the tolerances are not good for the print and it doesn't want to slide with only slight pressure, then don't force it because you don't want to break the small tabs on the XLite transmitter that hold the cover on. I haven't experienced any issues with it but you should be careful. It is important to use the 0.1 mm Resolution and 0.2 mm support z height.
- Thinner skin between magnet and outside surface for a stronger magnetic pull.
- Camfer around hole for magnet to make it easier to slide in.

This requires 0.1 mm layer height to have enough precision.
Support required all around and not just on the build plate.
I recommend 0.2 mm 'Support Z Distance' otherwise the surface area above the support will droop down too much.
25% support density.
Support Pattern: Zig Zag
Support Horizontal Expansion set to 0.4 mm helps give you something to grab for the support under the tabs.
I find that using tweezers to pop out the support from inside the grooves works well.
I have experimented with printing this with supports only touching build plate it it came out just fine even in the area that has very small overhang that connects with the tabs on the X-Lite. It is worth trying to print this way first to see if it works for you as well as it is much easier of the only support removal is on the tabs that stick out. This likely again depends on your printer setup and filament quality if you can do this without support. Getting the support out of the tube is not too difficult if you work it but it is a lot easier if you don't have support in the tube.
