3D model description
Printed out the Replacement knob for Bosch stovetop for my brother-in-law, and it worked well for several months, but there were a couple minor issues:
- The indicator mark pointed the wrong way by 180 degrees.
- The fit on the shaft was a little bit sloppy.
- The shaft hole was too deep - stuffed some paper towel in it and it was okay.
This makes me think that the oriignal knob was probably for a different Bosch stove.
My brother-in-law actually liked the replacement knob more and wanted a full set, so I turned the D cutout around, sized it down so it's a nice snug fit, and printed out a bunch.
If you're curious about the fifth knob in the photo, that was a little surprise - I took a bad 3D scan of my niece's face and swapped her in on one of the knobs.

Note: I wanted to try Cults3D as a possible alternative to Thingiverse, but after giving it a bit of a look, I'm not super impressed. Feel free to visit my Thingiverse page if they can manage to keep that site running:
I went to school as a mechanical engineer, and got interested in 3D modeling, specifically the SDRC I-DEAS CAD/CAM software system. This interest got me my first job working for a CAD/CAM reseller doing pre and post-sales support. I was lucky to be involved in 3D printing in the early 90s - for a demo of rapid prototyping, I modeled the mouse from my HP-UX CAD workstation and it was rendered via stereolithography. I still have that model, but across the years I stopped using CAD and moved to systems administration. Now that 3D printing is affordable and mostly reliable, I've gotten into it and am having a blast. I printed all the usual cute little trinkets and tchotchkes, but quickly got bored of that. What I find most interesting is needing something, then spending a little bit of time in a CAD program and soon after that having a real, functional version of the part in my hand.
I'm a cyclist and bike mechanic as a hobby and a side job, and have found endless applications of 3D printing to both bikes and bike maintenance. Coworkers have also come to me with many varied requests, each of which has been an interesting challenge and an opportunity to learn.
I am constantly learning, constantly trying to challenge myself to learn new things and technologies, so hopefully as I progress my designs will continue to improve.
