This evening i handed the bro my M99T fob to design and 3d Print a replacement button for it. i am aware you can 3d print rubbery items. but this has been designed for PLA. i do not know if it works with other materials.

Heres what he came up with

https://www.printables.com/model/594028-fiat-coupe-alarm-replacement-button

Thought some of you may appreciate the option.

Edit: ill host the file indefinitely on my nextcloud the first time i get the chance and post the link incase printables link becomes dead

For future reference, many years ago i started to model the case.

One day i will get round to finishing it im not sure how many are left in the wild but may as well give back a little something

That's a nice bit of work! I think it'll work fine with other materials; just a case of having the machine setup and the 'slicer' calibrated for it. You could use TPU, but like any rubber there's different shore ratings. So I'd think you'd spend a bit of time and money finding one that's right. Plus PLA comes in loads of colours so you can coordinate to the car smile

Hello Richy

Yes, this is the future !

There's bound to be loads of odds and sods needed around the cars.

The rubbery centre button of the later (round) M99 T2 fobs also disintegrates readily and the fobs are getting quite expensive to replace (£125 from Abacus Alarms). A much easier design to replicate, if the button is made without the text...

good job Meta wink

sadly i dont have a round fob to test else id have modelled that too.
im super fortunate to have the skills and access to kit to do small dev work like this but time is something that isnt as kind to me. (see previous comment about having half modelled square case for 6 years)

Is it something you could measure and md post a couple of pics, Dave?

If it's not too complicated a shape then it might just need digitising?

It may be pertinent to grab PCB microbutton depth from case too, helps with allowing it to "click" properly when pressed. ideally would need PCB Pics with a measurement reference, and as many other measurements and pics as possible.

I had the same problem a few years ago and superglued a large black grommit onto the fob - so far it's stayed perfectly attached.
