Di3 Thumbwheel Bed Dial


SummaryFor M3 stainless steel nut that are 5.5mm wide. I tried the other thumb wheel on here, but it did not fit the M3 nuts I got from my local Ace Hardware. I used a black Sharpie marker to give some contrast.How I Designed ThisAt the time I made this, Onshape did not support text so I made my own characters. If you have an Onshape account, I made the file public: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/f3fdcd0c31b648a4bc42e302/w/54c2055210294548a7624886/e/8df74fd910da407f98be51b6 (bad link fixed) I also added variables to the Onshape file. Nut size: -- #nut_width is set to 5.5 mm The offset tolerance--make larger if nut is the correct size but too tight: -- #offset is set to 0.2mmInstructionsBest printed at 0.1mm layer height. I used 25% honeycomb fill using S3D. May want to print at 0.2 mm for a quicker print and then use them to fine tune for a better print. Was suggested by the fine folks at: http://3dprinterbrain.com/pmwiki.php/DupI3/RecommendedMods
