Got an old Mackie mixer to use as part of a video job. Of course it was missing a volume slider for one of the channels. Here is the replacement I created built from dimensions taken from one of the original sliders.

Check out the volume knob I just made for the same mixer

After review of the printed piece I will probably go back and change it up a bit. This one works well but it isn't close enough to the originals for my liking.


Printed with MakerWare default high quality settings. Printed upside down with supports. I did have to do a bit of cleaning up of the supports and used a small file to get the indents good enough.

It is a bit snug on the metal part of the slider but it fits well.

Hey AmazingSpanoMan

Do the Sliders need scaling to fit?? Because they look small! Just to be sure!

With Kind Regards


they shouldn't. I was able to hand press on mine without scaling.

I just couldn't stand looking like a second rate professional anymore. Not many people can even tell that I made one of the sliders unless they really look hard and know what they are looking for.

Great idea. If I get a sec Ill build the ones for NI too.
