Printed well, and they worked better than I expected. Has made leveling far easier and more accurate, likely due to the larger diameter so easier to get a perfect level and just overall easier to reach then the tiny metal knob. Good model.

It printed well from the gcode file but aren't the temps a bit too high? Cura has been giving me lots of trouble with this. As I'm a beginner in this realm, I'm interested to know what settings have others used with unmodified tornadoes. Thanks!

For me this model was pretty much the benchmark test for my print settings as it produced a lot of "shake" and was the first model that "y shifted" on me so I had to spend some time tuning my slicer settings and Vref to get it to print right.
Thanks for both the great model and the tuneup :)

Great Petelking that you've tuned the tornado!!

do you maybe still have the slicing options for the gcode you uploaded. I printed a perfect gear with the gcode you provided then went to slice the stl file myself and got little gaps between the infill and the walls. Im using a 15% infill overlap.
I imported your gcode into Cura as a profile and the infill overlap option Cura imported is 10% so Im a bit confused. Is that the overlap you used or did Cura just put the default there.
btw thanks for the design.

Yes the 10% its a cura default.

Did you use the default overlap for the gcode you uploaded or something else. Because I bumped up the default to 15% but still got gaps between infill and the walls. Maybe im doing something else wrong. If possible could you provide me the profile for the settings you used to slice the knob. Thanks

Add a new printer.. then choose Tevo TARANTULA profile and change the build size volume for 300x300x400 and its done.. thats what i did when i created the gcode. Now i’m using s3d

Thank you mate.. any tips are welcome ok? best regards

Actual Diameter is 50mm
and height is around 8mm

Knob Description is wrong :-) Nothing for bad

Did One to test. 80mm/s printspeed 0,15mm layer height, around 1h to print.

Yeap Psycho that was a mistype! Sorry for that mate

Nice Job !
Wich quality print to have a perfect fit ? 0.2 is ok ?
They do not fall after a while due to vibrations?

Hello greg76.

i printed 0.2 filament inland PLA.

they dont fall never.. if fits just perfect in fact you need a little force to put it in.

there a .gcode file if you want to load to your sdcard and print it at once. No tweking at all.

I heated a little with a lighter and did 2-3 hummer knocks.
