The website has a .STL file, which isn't the easiest to edit.  (I use 123D design - an old non-supported subset of Fusion 360 for designs)  I printed a quick test copy of the panel, and discovered that my switches are too wide for the existing panel.  The outer cutout is fine, but the inner cutout is square, and mine are rectangular.  As it is, that prevents the threads of my switches getting through to the bottom.  Basically I need to cut out a box aligned with the existing outer box down to the round holes.

(Also, the triangular pieces on the bottom add a lot to the print time because supports need to be printed all the way "up" to them (assuming that one prints the unit upside down.)

Jay,

the panel is a made with https://www.tinkercad.com
and the design is locked-in there.
But if you make an account at their site, I think I can move it to you.

... and I also have some rectangular-head  buttons here ... bad
purchases, several times.
Please look carefully for the square-heads: Only these are correct for
RL02 .

Yes, I have a TinkerCAD account  (which is to say Autodesk) - same email as this message, so if you can forward the design to me, I'll make one suitable for my switches, and make it available for other to use as well.  Thanks.

(I did do a search for "unibone", and "rl02" and "i2c" and didn't see it, so maybe you just need to share the design to make it available in the "gallery").

As for "correct" it doesn't matter to me that these switches are not the same size as the originals, aside from this mounting issue.

I have now done a "remix" of Jeorg's RL02 panel, available for public use on TinkerCAD.  A search for "RL02" will find both the original and my remix.
