DIY Eymax to M42 adapter

So, I just sent this off to get 3D printed, and if it works, I'll make sure it's available to anyone who wants one!

I'm doing two—one is FDM (ABS, coarse resolution but very strong) and the other is MJM (translucent acrylic, extremely fine resolution). I'll use the MJM to verify the design, and hopefully the FDM will work for actual use.
How are you having it made?
FDM is extruded in 0.2mm layers, so I'm not sure how well it will render an M42×1 thread mount, but hopefully it's close enough that screwing in a lens will force the threads open. Either way, the front may need to be sanded slightly to get the flange distance just right...

Now I just need to shoot a test roll to confirm infinity focus.

I've been printing camera accessories with Shapeways as well. There's a firm in Maryland that can nickel-coat 3D printed parts to give them a little more strength: http://www.repliforminc.com/home.htm
By the way, what CAD package are you using? I've had enough of AutoCAD and I'm looking for a replacement.
