I use 4 of these per MendelMax 1.5 printer.

I spent quite a bit of time with jridley's script, printing out lots of different thumbscrews until I came up with these. I like this version that I came up with - specifically because I don't end up needing the extra bridging layer that you get with jridley's script (the bridging comes out just fine); plus these thumbscrews are thin enough to work with a single M3 nut on a MendelMax 1.5 with the Y carriage barely clearing the frame; and the pronounced ridges make it possible to tighten these thumbscrews with just a single finger (or thumb). Other knurled knobs or thumbscrews with less pronounced ridges didn't work as well for me, but obviously YMMV.

If your specific thumbscrew requirements are different from those used in this object, I recommend downloading jridley's OpenSCAD script and playing around with the values to get exactly what you need.
