I wasn't able to fit the other dials over the rotary shaft, so I decided to make one myself. First I just printed a circle with 3 mm hight and did that over and over till it did fit. Next thing was adding the big wheel and lengthening the shaft.

Now it fits perfectly.


If one of the other dials don't work for you, you could try this one, but you might be better off, just making one yourself.

Walls of the shaft are 0.8, so with a 0.4 nozzle it's ok (2 perimeter wall), but when you have a bigger nozzle, you'll end up with only 1 perimter wall, which will snap.

I uploaded the sketchup file.

evolution works! its better than my old design! congrats and thank you!

Thanks, late reply I know, but still ... thanks

I was willing to upload the sketchup file, so you could measure before printing, but I see it worked out fine.

Never thought somebody else would print this and use it. Thanks for doing so.

 I ended up modifying the model to give it an extra 3mm on the diameter as the original print ended up with 1 perimeter walls which didn't hold up too well after being placed onto the D shaft. I have a .5 nozzle though so that may be a contributing factor to such thin walls?

 Yes, you are right. I have a 0.4 nozzle and made the walls 0.8 so on my print it's a 2 perimeter wall. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll put it in the instructions.

Nice Design! Wonder if the D shaft is the same size as the one on my panelmax, will give this a go once my printer is back online!
