Z-Axis Knob by Stefan May 28, 2010

Description

This is a knob that screws nicely onto the M8 threaded rods for the Z-Axis on a Makerbot. Inspired by Zaggo's thingiverse.com/thing:975, this knob is quick to print.

One of my first prints. It has been extremely handy. The best upgrade for my printer I have ever made.

Stefan, you rock! I was manually moving the Z axis belt until I printed up your slick little Z axis knob...fits perfectly too! (No problems with Skeinforge 2009-11-06 with Makerbot defaults for me). :-D
