We get occasional requests for replacement Scribbler battery hatch covers. Since the Scribbler molded parts are made in a set, we don't have a ready source of spares, and 3D printing came to mind as a possible solution. Ken obtained an .stl file for the battery cover, and I'm posting it here. I'm curious how well this might work - is it flexible enough for the latch? Do the hinge tabs print thin enough to fit? Do variations in material and printer resolution call for slight adjustments?
If anyone with a 3D printer and a Scribbler gives this a try, I'd love to hear what you used and how it turns out. Any vintage Scribbler will serve — the compartment changed with S3 but the cover did not — and there are still Scribbler 1's and 2s serving in classrooms.
