I put it in place today. One of the round sides needed some slight filing/sanding for it to fit. I believe this is more to do with some problems with the printed piece rather than the model. It is now fitting pretty well. I left the spring at my workplace so I'll need to grab it Monday and check it the fitment there as well. I'd also like to do a few more prints before I call it good.

Pretty neat. I hadn't heard of them before. I'm sure a starting price of $1500 is good for getting an injection mold made but I have other avenues that would only cost me time and material. I would pursue those routes first.
