The front case angle is approximately 30° from horizontal.
The top part, the front is approximately 45° from horizontal.
The top part, the sides are approximately 70° from horizontal.

I hope that helps…

Step up to red alert. Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb :!:
Looking forward to summer being good this year.

I posted up my files if anybody would like to have a go at printing them. Best results probably printing in ABS, then doing a bit of sanding and vapor finishing, but I just used PLA with decent results.
