[M] Tool Plate with the 868 pogo connector

A project log for SecSavr Sublime [gd0036]

A 3D printer that I describe as "The FULL Coverage, Extended X, Pro Max, Ultramatrix Solution".

So a while ago, I decided to keep "Tool Plate" and "Tool Plate With Dowels" as two seperate files, thinking of performance. Well I don't think 6 extra cylinders per tool is going to have a noticable effect, so I unlinked "Tool Plate" inside "... With Dowels" and will now just use a single file.

I put the connector inside the Tool Plate file and wow this connector is larger than I expected. I guess I just didn't register how large an 8 x 30mm connector would be in relation to the size of the SecSavr Slight, and wonder if there would be enough space for the 8 to 1 paths in the Slime or the air inlet for component and part cooling. I could extend the size of the Slime from 106 to 108mm and put the pogo's there.
Yeah... it's possible. I think having the solder cups facing down would also make it easier to solder/inspect when out in the field, though I need to be able to shield the connection to prevent material dust (from spindle) causing issues or becoming a hazard.
As for the Slime, there seems to be no conflicts, though I may want to opt for a 16mm lens instead of a 12mm.
