UPDATE: Kobo N647 Replacement Button Cover

Wife has a Kobo N647 which is still going strong, but recently the rubber button cover has began to disintegrate. So I designed a replacement in SolidWorks and 3D printed it with out Prusa i3 MK3S + MMU2S

This was my first successful "soluble support" MMU2S print, where the body was printed in PETG while the "soluble supports" were PLA. If you have not heard of using PLA/PETG like this, well it turns out that the two adhere reasonably well to each other when printing, and once the model is printed and cooled the two are easy enough to separate. Hence why you can use one with the other to make a "soluble" interface 

As always, you can find all files here
