Extruder knob is a tight fit, a hammer is needed. Printing at 102 or 103% might be better, but it goes in with quite a few hits. I used a standard gear which measured 11.07mm in diameter.

the Z Axis nob is the best because i don't have to touch that lead screw, Thanks!

It looks like there is supposed to be a spinner for the Z knob since there is a single bushing in grip. Is there an .STL or purchase info for a spinner knob?

Just M3 Screw.

If I don't have a Z-motor damper can I still use the Z-knob?

You can, but you will have only 5mm to screw on. As I remember it is enough. But the longer the better.

Very nice. What is the difference between versions?

Knobs - just visual, less material, looks better
Rodbearing version, one has greater distance from rod to the printers frame

Serait il possible de voir le montage sur la Ender 3 ? Merci

English please

They want to see a picture of what it looks like installed.

About the rollers. what size hole did you design for? i see 13mm and 22mm rollers but not sure which you designed for.

For standart that is on Creality, perhaps 13mm. I just had one spare. One that push filament is on motor shaft is as usual, another reversed and pushed into the knob goes on top.
