That's extremely cool! Especially if you have a 3D scanner, you can scan the case back of the watch, reverse it, and have an exact for any case back. I'm sure it would make lots of unique case backs much more reasonable to open with the right 3D tools. :)

Very cool!! How long a process was it to do something like that?

Took maybe 10 minutes to design it on CAD with some rough eyeball measurements with some calipers. Then took 15 minutes to print. Luckily I nailed it on the first try. I was guessing that I'd have to make 2 or 3 before it fit just right because I was eyeballing it a little.

@Bergarn fortunately, or unfortunately, I don't have many watches :p

What 3D printer are you using?

I have been thinking about getting a SimpleBot to play with.
using a solidoodle. nothing special but it gets the job done. there are so many good budget printers now its easy to get into it...as long as you have the patience.
