Instructions

I originally designed this knob to replace a broken knob in our Chevy Venture minivan. However, since I made it parametric, it can really be used for just about any general purpose knob that you might need.

Here are the user defined parameters:

//Radius of the rounded fillet at the base of the knob. fillet_r = 5.588; // [1:10] //Narrow (bottom) radius of the knob. min_r = 11.862; // [5:20] //Wide (top) radius of the knob. max_r = 13.335; // [5:20] //Total height of the knob base. base_h = 20.188; // [5:50] //Calculated height of the non-fillet portion of the base. cyl_h = base_h - fillet_r; //Number of facets for base circle. base_res = 17; // [10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20] //Outer shaft radius. shaft_r = 5.607; // [1:10] // Shaft height. shaft_h = 18.1; // [5:50] //Inner shaft radius. shaft_in_r = 2.9335; // [0.5:8] //Width from shaft flat to edge of shaft inner radius. shaft_in_min_wid = 4.6355; // [0.5:16] //Number of facets for shaft circle. shaft_res = 30; // [20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40] //Thickness of shaft key. key_th = 1.625; // [0.25:4] //Width of shaft key from shaft outer radius to end of key. key_wid = 3.183; // [1:20] //Number that is large compared to dimensions of the knob. BIG = 40; // [30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100] //Fudge factor to ensure overlaps. dt = 0.01; // [0.001,0.01,0.1]
