Former LEGO ambassador and LEGO zealot as a whole. If I could give negative rep for people writing "Legos", I would. It's going to be very hard not to suspend any offender though.

comment Is 'plate between studs' SNOT supported by one of the LEGO building software?
Actually, BrickSmith is a LDraw editor only. I did the rendering with LDview which appears to have a windows version too.

Yes, I did use BrickSmith instead of MLcad, but the same principle of using a fine grid applies. Since neither checks for validity, you can do pretty much whatever you want (including impossible things).

comment Is there a convention for part and/or set numbers?
Don't think I don't feel shame for asking you to do it - I too would appreciate other answers, but I don't think it'll happen here.

@Caleb you're welcome - if you feel it's the correct one, you may want to proclaim it by accepting it, too.

Neat! Now you'll need to build the door around it.

As you said, "if you know what you're doing" (I sure wouldn't). Wait... you've only got one? ;)

I would recommend option 2 first. LEGO does have a nice customer serviec and they'll probably replace it without discussion. However, they want want to ask for the faulty part to be returned, and if it has be tinkered with, they may not be super happy about it. Keep the soldering iron for when LEGO absolutely doesn't want to replace it (never).
