Knurled Knob Test

We need to design some control knobs for the bed leveling screws and we like the effects of knurled aluminum knobs, so we try to make the same printing directly the knurl pattern.
We make a quick test with a very thin pattern and we don’t expect to obtain this quality on the small diamond edges of the knob.
The layer eight is 200 micron, so reducing the speed and the layer height to 100 micron the shape of the diamonds will results even better.

We think that the printing quality, especially in x and y position has contribution from the new all aluminum support of the hotends
