    Thanks, I did a quick and dirty print of it in PLA to mock fit, and it turns out it isnt going to work for me, there is another one I am trying, if it works out, I will be in touch!

    because of the scale youll probably need to do it with tough resin on a resin printer my thinnest lines are realistically 0.5mm


    i often find myself having to design everything from scratch in cad -_-

    Is anyone able to model up and print these little buttons? Manufacturer doesn't sell them anymore and our dog ate them off the oven...

    Simplest way would be to do it all in Prusa slic3r.
    1) Use the place on face to put it on the spout
    2) use the cut to remove some of it. (Discard the lower bit)
    3) use place on face to get it the right way again

    yeah, the height is a much tricker job, can't simply cut.
    Might be better off loading it in a cad program like fusion 360 and remodelling what you actually want in it to get it smaller.

    Hi all,

    Normally go to local library but the maker space is closed due to covid.

    I'd like one of these knocked up, but seeing as it's not that large and only 10% infill if you have a partial spool(s) leftover that you didn't know what do with I'm ok with whatever colour / mix of end bits of colour.

    File are here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2569642

    Prefer Syd pickup but if someone out of state wants to help I'd be ok with postage for such a simple project.
