Marcc!!! sorry to say 3D printers / process is rubbish!! they should sell them to the kindergardeens.

Nobody can produce knobs like I can mate, or dials. But Knobs for Kriesler bee hives etc ! not worth making. I mean you'd only get asked 4 times a year for 3 knobs . Not worth the effort easier just to use knobs from an 11/ 20 Kriesler,they are near the same anyway.

Other option is make a silicone mould from a good one, cast in epoxy and drill out.

I've done this for AWA TV knobs and it works well.

Stronger than the original too.

Saw some 3D printers at the local GoTafe, These things are improving in leaps & bounds. Theirs are not toy ones.

Go to your local tafe and ask if there is a course then locate a teacher or student that may be interested and be prepared to pay for their time ?
