Fixing ear defender

One of the three ear defenders in the studio has been broken for a while now. Even though there’s been an attempt to repair the headphones with “there, I fixed it“-aesthetics, I figured it was time to do it properly and 3D print a replacement part. First I saw this as a good opportunity to learn FreeCad, but after several failed attempts to get an image as a background for reference, I decided to go back to my comfort zone and remodel the broken part in software I’m more familiar with. After making two small test fit parts I managed to print a working replacement part on the first go.
