Autococker to PGP Frame Adapter

After mounting a slider frame to one of my PGPs, I wanted to take up the slack on the sides. Rather than cut a rounded groove into the frame, I drew this up in Fusion 360 and tested it on my PGP. I need to get longer screws to secure the front of the frame, but my first print in PLA worked out perfectly otherwise. I tweaked a few dimensions and printed another version in PETG. Both appear to work, but the PLA version is definitely stiffer considering that the adapter is only 0.5 mm thick at the thinnest point. I'll want to do some field testing, but so far, it seems to do the job.

Thanks! I'm not selling them right now, but I will be doing some field testing soon.

I might have a project for you Jon. I think (but its unconfirmed) I have a Cooper T grey delrin pump handle that has a slot in the right side for a hardline air tube. I'd like to see if this could be 3d printed.

I can certainly take a stab at it.

I got the adapter off of the printer this afternoon. It fits the frame perfectly and the slider trigger no longer binds when the front frame screw is tightened down like it did without the adapter. I also noticed that the pricing that Shapeways offers for this part is very reasonable. In addition to plastic, they also offer it in polished nickel steel and aluminum. The link can be found here.
