Righto, tomorrows plan is to model up the corners and 3d print them, as even the aliexpress cheapos are too small to cover all of the corner joins.

So.... bit of an update.... had a massive 3d printer fail last night, thought it was just a nozzle blockage but worse, managed to clean up the mess and thankfully had the replacement parts I needed to get it going again...
