Say good bye to those days of torturing your fingers while levelling the bed on the CR-10, here I remixed a previous version and I made a bigger knob attachment for manual levelling that it's easy to grab and still fits perfectly under the printer bed without obtrusion. I hope you find it useful as a did.

INSTALLATION NOTES: Unscrew the bed knob off the bed COMPLETELY, you'll notice the printed knob has a round collar. The bed knob has a round lip. Fit the collar of the printed knob into the lip on the bed knob then screw back on with that side facing up. This will prevent the wheel from falling off in middle print.

How I Designed This

I made this in 3ds Max since I don't know how to use other CAD programs yet

Thank you! Much appreciated, those tiny knobs were a pain to use.

Nice design. That was my sixth print and I'm already tired of those frikkin tiny knobs. I have big hands, could hardly get to the one under the extruder.
On my seventh print I tweaked the bed level after the print had started. Creality should ship these game changers.

Worked great on CR 10s! Also the print had a sick beat and good harmony in several spots heh.

Great knobs that perfectly fit on my CR-10 Mini.A must have.

They are very nice designed and fits Perfectly. So easy now to make my levelling. Thanks a lot!

It fits great on my CR10-S!

Perfect fit and makes leveling so much easier.

I made the first 2 on a Flashforge Finder (the CR10 was busy) and the second two on the CR10.

Sliced in Simplify 3D.

Thanks for this design, it saved me doing it myself.

Perfect fit on my new CR-10s, thankyou!

Beautifully designed! I had to resize it down 99.97% in Cura 3.1.0 for Mac to get it to fit perfectly on the knobs of my CR-10S as the original model was a tad loose. Thank you for this! Now bed leveling is so easy!

Very nice! Is the original wheel supposed to go all the way inside? Or stick out a little? Because it cracks the inner hole when I push it totally in. Maybe I need to finetune my printer a little more to have them fit exactly. But they still work fine, so it's not a problem anyway.

EDIT: Ah I see, I popped them too far in.

mine printed decent but the opening was too small for the CR-10 knobs. Is that normal or my printer(again)

I made one.. thanks. i cant be bothered to put up a photo though, i used stock cura settings

I printed it on my CR10S speed 60 bed 70 Nozzle 205 PLA

Anyone know if these will fit the mini?

these fit the mini

Fits great. Needed a bit of carving out in the centre where the original wheel pops thru, but other than that it's awesome. Thanks!

Fit like a glove! nice work Valerie!

These are fantastic - thank you for the great design!

This is fantastic. I wish I could put them on my Monoprice Select Plus. Knobs for it are available but nothing like this.

makes leveling so much easier. I can do finer adjustment on all 4 corners. Especially the rear table. Great idea and design.

Kudos for not being shy and going big. It is really great size for adjusting. I actually printed just one, then made a mold and make 4 with black onyx as I wanted them fast.

You doing so good , also read about this, the newest one

Strongly recommend.

These fit perfect! Thanks so much for designing these.

This is a fantastic addition to the CR-10! I wouldn't be surprised if the company didn't start adding something like this build-in!

Excellent! On my list of upgrades, my fingers thank you! These stock knobs were so painful to turn.

I printed this with 15% infill. Turned out perfect!
Don't waste time and filament, print with lower infill.

How do you fix it?

Because I fall

umm... a little of glue??

Thank you for the best designer !!!!

Just had the same problem. I put them on from the bottom. But you really need to take knob off slide this on it and put knob back on. You'll see what I mean when you take it off. I'm working on a revision that clips onto the knob so you wont have to take them off.

Thank you... Perfect!!!

Does not work on the 500x500x500mm version of the CR-10. Just a heads up for the ballers.

ok I was just looking for a comment on this I just tried to fit it on my 400 x400 x400 and it doesnt fit it hits the rails :(

As others have said before, hands down the best mod for the CR-10. Thanks you so much for taking the time to create......

My fingers thank you.

These are great fit perfectly and adjustment is easier thanks to the larger diameter.

Thank you! This printed out great! Super helpful and functional!

The best design ever. Functional, beautiful, and simple.

would you be able to do a remix for these knobs for the ender 2?

This is the best mod for the cr-10 ever. Thank you so much!

Just excellent!!! Saw a post on the CR-10 group about this. Sounds like you are a student and I'd like to send you a few bucks because this is fantastic! Level the bed with the old screws is a PITA.

Love it! SOOO much better than the stock ones. Thanks!

I printed this and the spokes did not connect to the inner wheel

Looking it on Tinkercad there shows openings on the bottom side where they do not connect

Maybe your printer came with a different type of knob, always print one first to test, this is for the CR-10 300x300

That is the one I have, the spokes don't reach the inner hub or outer wheel. I picked it up off the print bed and all but 3 fell off. the inner hub fits perfectly on the leveling knob on my CR10. made a remix and filled the spaces.

Done after 6 hours for 4. Very good.

Clever idea and definitely one I'm going to print..

will this work for cr-10 s4?


Comments deleted.

It's too big for the S4 and S5.

You can always do a remix, this is a remix from other design

Crazy Awesome. :) good work!!

Interesting design! :D
