However I thought that the porosity was inherent to the 3D printing. Are you getting around the porosity somehow? The surface of your mount appears to the eye nearly as uneven as that of the original one on Shapeways.
Here's a video of me mounting the outer shell of an Otterbox Commuter case. You can decide for yourself if it looks too difficult to mount... Sorry all for the picture laden posts.

Also, here's a link for the mount for cost... My only goal is to try to recover some of my shipping costs. The one for cost has a 1/32" wider catch...
