You just made my life better. +10 points to you.

I printed these today with pla fillament , everything is good its just a little difficult yo put the screws inside to fit but it fit perfect and its super tight as it should be

I printed these with the PLA that came with my Tevo Tarantula, with nozzle temperature of 210 and bed temperature 50. Printed in 12 minutes per piece.

They came out fine. Two (pain free) thumbs up for this design. Thank you for sharing this!

I´ve printed this knob four times and it makes the adjustment of the heatbed very easy:-)

I was thinking the original metal nuts would not fit in without severe heating, so they melt the surrounding material. Turned out they fit so loosely, I can't actually use the knobs. Great idea, but the dimensions are a bit off. I guess I would have to print them again, this time scaled down to 85%

After printing scaled down to 90%, they fit perfectly! Neat design, and work great. They just need to be scaled down.

97% reduction proved the best fit for me. Work great.

Printed in tevo tarantula kit PLA. 200/65 on glass. Fit perfect! One of the first things you should make for a new tarantula build. Thanks

Dankeschön für das entwerfen past super.ich habe die Schraube warm gemacht und ins PLA gedrückt so hält es auch ohne Kleber.


first i thought: boooring and stupid, no explosions
but i printed it as some kind of test for round thing as some of my first parts.
And boy! It should be the VERY first thing you print.
These knob.... what would i do without them.
It is now soo easy to just turn the screw by say 1/8 turn.
I switched between filaments and adjust the bed level without even measuring again

Not tight enough on the original metal bolt, it slips.

What material did you use? That's a huge factor since filament expandes at different rates.
