Yessir, it was shipped Friday. I didn't get to update eBay until today. Busy weekend working on my ATX power switch.

The files for the backplate are here:
(expires after 30 days, on or about 12/17/19)

I think the designs are all in SolidWorks. Protocase is the fab shop I've been using and they handled the CAD work. I used their free tool to get the original plate in the ballpark, their engineers took it from there (VERY helpful, they were). I don't have any files for the Altair itslef, maybe Mr. Douglas could help you out?

A note: If anyone thinks they can get these made for less than $80 apiece, I'll stop providing them. The $80 + 10% eBay markup is how I landed on $90. If such is the case, could you wait until I'm able to offload the rest I have?
