This has a flat top, can you make one with a slightly rounded top?

I'll try it.

 

But, actually it is already slightly rounded. See attached section drawing.

Anyway, I'll make it more rounded.

I made the top curvature radius small. See attached.

Certainly, It looks similar to the original soft rim cap.

Thanks.

 

You can see the cad data on same site.

I would like it to purchase a 3D printed track point but would like it to be rounded at the top and not concave and rounded.

I also would like to buy 3d printed soft rim trackpoint caps! As close to the original soft rim as possible. Let us know or shoot me a PM if you would be willing to print and sell some.

 

Of course I rather have Lenovo make them, but they don't feel like satisfying their loyal customers in this case. So I would settle for any alternative.

Actually, I am selling my 3d printed caps on auction web sites.
But, sorry, they are Japanese domestic web sites.
https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/f250721194

And also, I've updated my CAD data on the web site.
You can print them, if you have a printing servise.

Anyway, the posting cost from Japan to US seems not to be expensive.
I will think about selling caps on a global web site like ebay.
