    I wonder if now that you have a good, working replacement, if the replacement could be scanned and later 3-D printed?

    RE: "if the replacement could be scanned and later 3-D printed?"

    I've asked several friends who do 3D printing and they all suggested that the material used would most likely be more brittle than the original and wouldn't last long. From the markings on the OEM ones, a stupidly expensive mold was probably made, and the part was injection molded for mass production.
