Make Your Own Replacement Knob Using a 3D Printer

Meet the Newest (And Perhaps Most Powerful) Tool in the Workshop

When the knob on trusty veteran gas grille broke, I tried in vain to locate a replacement.  Then, one day, at a local tech entreprenuers' meeting I met Brian Davis, an enthusiastic, early adopter of 3D printing technology.  He suggested we "print" the knob.  Intrigued, I invited him to the shop to show me how it was done.

The 3D printer used in this video is one of the original models from MakerBot.  To see their latest offerings, click here.
