I bet it involves taking a CAD slice and then 3D printing a single layer.
Then scanning it...….

Have you tried this method MJ, as I believe you use Fusion 360?

Let me know if there's a measurement that's missing.
Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. I will use this for sure.

It’s my pleasure to help other forum members now and then, as it’s been an amazing aid to my various ‘8s ownership over, what must be, getting close to 20 years! I really think that I might have given up on ‘8s if it weren’t for the fabulous people here.

However, while typing that ^ I just had an idea which I will try later
a cad file like this may still be usefull to for example get it laser cut etc

Hmm laser cutting is a good idea. Could make it out of all sorts of things then - acrylic maybe, or just plywood of course. I might do some investigating

Out of interest what do we think a laser-cut acrylic or plywood replacement panel would be worth?

Let me know as soon as you have something.

I've tried making a CAD file to get it laser cut but something isn't adding up with the dimensions provided in earlier posts..
