    Cube3 Silicon Wiper Replacement

    Anyone up for a template?

    I'd say it's 1.5mm thick silicon, with the following shape:

    Here's a prototype that I quickly designed tonight (Not sure how far you've gotten on yours, zToddMan1... my other wipers are starting to break, and I wanted to make sure I got something down to print in case it did break). Since I don't have my caliper right now, I'm unable to verify the accuracy of this one. I can also release a vector for CNC/laser cutting these, if there is enough demand. I'm not sure what these should be printed in. I only print PLA on my cubes, so for similar use-cases, TPU may be a viable solution?

    Anyways... enjoy! I'll edit this post with any updates.


    Edit 1. I've measured and updated the File. I also printed a test wiper in PLA, and it fits like a glove. I may try some TPU later.

    Edit 2. I've also added an SVG, in case any of y'all wanna try laser cutting this out.
