They work for cold bed leveling only. They will not work when leveling a preheated bed. (the nut slips inside the printing thumb wheel. (ABS)

I noticed this problem. When I preheat the bed and level it at temperature, it seems to hold it's level pretty good. I think it is a problem of expansion and contraction.

The first set I made were in PLA, and I was having major problems! When I took them off they were visibly smooshed. I should have known better.

Work great. I wish the corners had been radiused off in the cad file. I broke the sharp edges of the part with a knife and file after printing.

Hello! It was super easy to add rounded corners so I uploaded a new version. Enjoy!

sorry just read the instructions. sorry

what is the best way to orient this? does it need supports? I am still learning thanks

great little wheels.

Was reminded of the bag of bits that came with the printer on another knob page - liked these better.
printed, used, work great :-)

The little arrows aren't really big enough to feel. I'd probably have left the arrows off and just made a much wider notch in the wheel.

They will certainly make calibrating a hot bed much more user friendly.
Cheers

Works perfectly, great replacement for those little finger busters. Thanks for sharing!
