    Thanks for taking the time to find a solution to the unsightly ends of the door seals Robin. Good to see you on the Forum again.
    I also asked GD about these years ago and again last year. I'm not holding my breath!

    If you take something to bits often enough, eventually you'll have two of them......

    For a company who is fiercely proud of their brand, they don't seem to mind them all driving around looking unfinished. If you want some, just let me know

    Maybe use the printer to make a mould and then make them in something soft.

    Not a bad idea. I've ordered some flexible filament today which might also work

    Today I made my version of door seal ends for Sumo. Its a PLA prototype, but fits at first time, so can be made of smth better, for example ASA.







    Robin, if you don't want to smash it wiyh the door, may be use a Polypropylene to print it

    Never tried ASA or Polypropylene but there's no space with the door shut - seal fully compressed. Yours looks great, colour aside

    My roll of TPU arrived and after printing a little mod for the extruder with ABS (to stop it bunching up) I set about printing that door seal. Printed perfectly and it's INCREDIBLY tough. Been twisting it around and it just regains its shape. Not going to get it as shiny as the ABS was but it's not terribly important as it's not very visible, especially once the door is shut.
