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

aw man... skeinforge dies when I try to slice up this part. :(
Try the G code.
Thanks, I'll give this a try when I'm back in the office! I guess the only issue there is that it will have the settings for your bot, but I'll poke through the G code to make sure the temps are correct for my setup.
