    I’ve been working on truing up the Torso plates to get them to align better using a parametric modeler. Hopefully that will make adjustments easier and accuate. Here’s where I am so far. I’m trying to keep the parts as close to the originals as I can for this exercise. Here I’ve relieved the corners and standardized the dovetails. A 0.3mm gap between the parts to help lessen assembly stresses yet still be tight.

    • Hello Reece,
      Very clean remodeling!
      Did you try to print them to see how the parts fit and hold together, once the the 0,3mm gap is added?

      • Hi Gael,
        I made some test dove tails and they went together very nicely. I did find that there was some flexing/distortion so I’m adjusting. Was there an engineering reason for that style of dove tail?
