Cradle for SPOT Trace GPS Unit

This cradle, mounted to the top of a medium to large mammal collar, is intended to hold a SPOT Trace GPS unit. The cradle can be 3D printed to create a master from which a silicone mould can be made, allowing easy reproduction in polyurethane, epoxy resin, etc. STL file available here. Also included are optional standoffs to add in moulding. N.B. For ease of printing, you may wish to split the cradle in two horizontally in your slicing program of choice.
