That would be an interesting project. I have a Type W plugin that has a split white DC balance knob. IIRC, this is a common problem. I believe there is a similar knob used elsewhere that has the same problem. They should be simple objects to print, but the set screws are really small and I don't have a hex key that will fit. (It's smaller than .05", which is usually the smallest you see on Tek gear). I was also wondering if it would be possible to print the 7K series backplane connector covers.While no expert, I would recommend starting with:
- laser-sintered nylon, which is slightly rubbery, slightly rough (much less than ABS), and comes in a small range of colours
- SLA, which is white, hard and very slightly flexible, very smooth, very high resolution (threads are possible), and comes in white
I used shapeways for the nylon, and dirtypcbs for the SLA, without problems.
