Print head alignment aid

I'm in the process of setting my Ultimaker 2+ print head back together. The manual mentions a print head alignment aid, see below.

I don't have that tool. Can I get a precise enough distance, so that I can measure with a caliper when I should stop tightening? Or if that's a bad idea, print such a "print head alignment aid"?

    This spacer is part of the maintenance kit

    STL-file and dimensions are also available on Youmagine: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-printhead-spacer

    The distance is intended to be 16.8mm - well doable with a vernier caliper
