I'm dumping a 3D printed t50rp mod I did about 2 years ago for the community.
You are free to print it and tune it as you like.

Pics album, these are renders: https://imgur.com/a/Mui1aWY
1x 3D printer or printing service
8x 3mm self tapping screws or 8x 3mm machine screw + a hand tapper + thread
2x t50rp drivers
Any pads you want to user (can start with hm5 hybrids) the pad lip is aprox 101mm diameter.
2x female mini xlr jacks (can be found in ebay)
Assembly is pretty intuitive.
Driver: Simple disassemble your t50rp (plenty of vids). Remove the driver from the baffle and keep the three screws. Attach the driver to the baffle using the three screws and make sure to reuse the gasket the t50rp comes with.
XLR Jack: Each cups have 2 protrusions. First take two pieces of wire and thread it thru the hole inside. Make sure to use a sharpie to mark the negative wire. So, I like to use 4 pin female mini xlr. This lets you use Audeze, ZMF, etc cables. Make sure pin 1 is positive and pin 3 is negative. Next solder the wires accordingly. To secure the xlr jack to the slot using epoxy (or steel reinforced epoxy). I would not recommend threading it (the thread is 7/16" 32 which should be standard on all female 4 pin mini xlr jack. The reason is the wire will get twisted and potentially tear/break. Once secured you can solder the drivers to the jacks.
Cup + headband: Take the dome shaped pieces from the t50rp and push it through the center of the inside of the cups. Then take the t50rp screws for this joint and thread it through to secure the cups to the headband (just undo disassembly).
Pad Ring + Baffle + Cups: Slot the baffle into the cups. Then screw the pad ring into the baffle (you want the lip to face away from the baffle) and into the 4 prongs in the cups.
Though I won't go into details on how to tune them, I will provide tips. Part of the journey is having fun with modding and exploring new things.
