Sweet job, AimoPaukku!!

I've been 3D-ing for several years now and love it. Haven't used it to make anything for our cars (yet) but I have used it to adapt my iPhone to fit the Spark Drone controller since I prefer to keep my Otterbox protective cover on my phone and this precludes the drone transmitter from accommodating the phone....and it works like a charm.

I'll try your STL file and see how my MakerBot 2X handles it.......assume that ALL of the Eyesight modules across the Subaru lineup are identical........

Update: just downloaded, put the STL thru Netfabb for any repairs needed and now into Makerware appl., perfect. I'll try these out and report back.......

But i did add the .stl model to first post, so i hope you can get those print locally.
I’ve used
https://www.3dhubs.com
a few times to print parts for my 2015 OB. You just need the stl files, which have kindly been provided by the OP. The Hub lets you find a local person who can print your parts; let’s you upload the file(s); check the file by visualizing it; quotes the price and takes the payment. For one of my orders I was able to drive 10 minutes and pick up the parts, saving shipping costs.

Hi again:

Fusion 360 is supposed to be a very robust 3D appl. I use Vellum Xenon which was always written to work on the Apple OS.......also have seen the Prusa printer and it looks great. I like the Makerbot 2X because it uses ABS which is critical to my needs.....sadly, no longer available from the company, everything they produce now uses PLA and some flex. materials......but then, my Makerbot is paid for by a client so it was, in effect, FREE!

Here's my set of ES covers with all thanks to AimoPaukku fir his great 3D modeling.......

Took about an hour and half to do the print process, the support structures popped off the caps easily and the caps needed almost NO cleanup......

Great job doing the modeling in his 3D appl.

Cool! Key question: How well do they fit the USDM Legacy/Outback?

Edit: The pair I printed in PLA, free, at our local library are a secure snap fit in both our (USDM) 2015 Legacy and 2016 Outback.

I have to test fit them now.......my key question is if the ES units are identical across the entire Subaru line......it seems like they should be identical, regardless of the outfitted car but we'll see......

As soon as I have tested them, I'll be back with a report. My 2015 OB foolishly was NOT optioned with ES due to my own stupidity........I recall that the earlier ES units fit right up against the windshield, perhaps I'm incorrect?

BTW, PLA may NOT be the best material to use as it's far less sturdy when exposed to sun and higher temps.....
