3D printing Big Muff Knobs

Post by taylornutt »

I have been wanting to learn about 3-D printing for a while and my work has a number of them.

I found a free model of old Sovtek Big Muff knobs and trying to get them to actually work.

I broke the first two drilling them out, but I was able to insert an brass piece with a set screw in the third one.

I attached it to a pot to make sure it would work.

The new ones we printed on a better printer and look a lot better.

I hopefully will have some fully functional ones available soon.

Thanks. The working one is cracked on the top. I am hoping refine the process and make the next ones without breaking the knob.

what a great use for 3D printing, too.
