NES Cartridge Door

by Thingiverse
The cartridge door flap on a friend's Nintendo broke and she needed a replacement. We tried another Thingiverse model, the Nintendo NES Flip Top Lid, but it was a little ill-fitting and the pegs were fragile and not quite correct. I took my calipers to what was left of the broken door and came up with this OpenSCAD model.
I've also provided the OpenSCAD source file I used to generate this model.
Version History:

V01 : Original implementation.
V02 : Fix a door closure problem. The internal strain relief between the top and front panels went edge-to-edge, which prevents the door from closing all the way.
V03 : Alter overhangs on the strain reliefs so that it can be printed either-side-down. This lets you optimize print orientation based on quirks in your printer such as warping during printing.
Elemental: The same as V03, but with holes cut out in a pattern reminiscent of the Elemental Technologies server faceplate.
