I adjusted the slot placement and chopped off the bottom half of the fingerboard. I also printed a second piece to hold the header ends. This way I am creating the full length of the fingerboard. I had to completely re-do the design of the strips in order for there to be enough room for them at the nut end. Before they were “I” shaped. Now they are shaped more like how my clamps fit together. I also have to print them with supports because the header end is now flat on the build plate and the rest of the strip is in the air. Not the most ideal way to print, but my tests from a long time ago proved that they can't be printed sideways without ruining the rails that keep the strip in place.
These pictures are taken before the ebony base was ready. I just placed the prints on for the sake of measuring.
