    So BC Huff is nice except I will not stand for a Huffer that is not a slant cab. So instead of waiting for BC or someone else to make it I'm making it myself.

    Greys version 4 test and it fits pretty well.

    Orange version 5 test is being printed.

    That looks pretty nice and you've got decent resolution/quality for a filament printer. What are you printing on?

    Grey was done on the Ultimaker 2+. Orange, which screwed up, on a Makerbot Rep2. Filament got tangled on the last few mm. Test did its job though. I've got a couple of spots to fix for tolerance.

    Looks good! I already thought that the new Badcube Huffer was a big improvement over their first one. This is a nice touch though.

    Tested an almost fully working prototype. I'd say I'm about 90% there. It's a game of .1mm now. And screws.

    Prototype finalized. It fits. Using paper clips as pins Huff is now a slant cab! Next I'll have to find some translucent blue filament and a can of more appropriate orange spray paint.

    Ultimaker 2.0+ using pla filament

    @Dangard Ace are you going to post the STL file? I would like to make this mod for personal use. If not, can you post it up on ShapeWays?

    Still working on it. After just sitting and looking at it for a few days I'm not liking how it's sitting in some positions. Shifting things around by .2mm to .5mm to get a nice boxy look.
