I haven’t fiddled with and used the new bigger ones much yet since I’m still in the process of improving my vacuum forming hardware and techniques and experimenting with different materials. So see my reply as first impressions.
I really like how easy you can fit a non modded cam. So it’s easier to install and there’s still some clearance (which prevents pcb poking through the sides and/or top).

Your handmade Shanghai canopies are definitely my favorite when it comes to appearance. Lower profile, not that blocky (if this word exists) means smoother rounded flowy design. Also smoother surface, no printing lines visible on top (ok, maybe I should sand my printed plug).
I haven’t put that much thoughts and practical testing into my comparison between the two types of canopies so far. Because of that I draw no conclusion which one I like more.
What are your thoughts? Do you prefer one over the other?
