Replacement Brera, Spider 159 Silver key Cap Ends
3D printed end caps, I drive a Brera 2.4 jtdm, my silver key cap ends decided to fall apart , crack bits of silver came away and finely the two parts that clip together gave up. I found it was impossible to buy the silver end cap, you have to get a second hand key or buy new, very expensive, I found a thread here describing this difficulty some months ago, someone had tried successfully to cast one in metal.
I decided to have ago at 3D printing the part and with the help of another design engineering friend have managed to have the part made. Hopefully attached some pictures. Its made from black strong nylon flexible plastic and Im very happy with the results. Uploaded the design file to an online 3D printing company called Shapeways, they did the job and posted part back to me. Its not silver, Ilike the new look black.
