R4-D4 Dome work progress 3.2

Did some 3D designs & printing for location & locking brackets for the Dome's Lid.

First up was a bracket to hold a magnet on with. It screws inside the underside edge of the frame, with a spigot, and the ring magnet is then pressed onto it. Then a washer will be glued to the underside of the lid. The first design didn't leave enough clearance when the bracket was fitted, meaning the magnet was flush level with the top of the frame.

This is so that the Lid won't easily pop off or move, when driving etc.

The second brackets were designed to correctly align the lid with the top edge of the dome.
These allow the Lid's location blocks to sit in, holding the lid and stopping it from moving/rotating etc.
Again, the hole is to secure to the underside of the frame.
Three of these will be printed.
