    Garmin Xero Chronograph Cover

    Designed and printed a snap-on cover for my Garmin Xero.

    I tried to make the stl file available on thingiverse.com, but it's not working correctly - keeps logging me out and displaying an error when I try to access the file. If anyone wants the stl file, please PM your email address and I'll send it to you.

    Start printing them up and sell them on Ebay. Garmin dropped the ball when they sold a $600 electronic with nothing to protect it but the oversized cardboard box it came in. I found a hard sided hardrive case that fits perfectly for $8 but if Garmin would have put their logo on it they could have easily sold a bunch for $30-40. Same with your snap on screen protector. You came up with a great solution to an unmet need.

    I don't have a Garmin, but you sure did a good job of designing that item. Congrats on a job well done.

    I bought one off eBay since I donít have a printer. Yours looks good though.

    I am going to try PLA+ filament for the printing, hope that will be ok since I do not have any PETG handy at the moment. Will come back with a report on the print.

    There's already someone on eBay selling a similar 3D printed one for $12.50 including shipping. Don't know if his clips on or is friction fit. It is printed in black ABS which would defeat my goal of a light color to keep the chrono cooler on hot sunny days here in the high desert.
