3D model description

A replacement Covertec-style button for M4 screw with lens-head (flat base, round top). I usually use Allen (hex) screw.

It consists of two parts that snap-in together. While the top part is always the same, there are several options for the bottom part:

Original flat-bottom style
Curved bottom for hilts of diameters Ø33, Ø34 Ø35, Ø36, Ø37, Ø38, Ø39 and Ø40 mm


3D printing settings

Printer Brand:

Prusa

Printer:

Prusa Mk2

Rafts:

No

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.15

Infill:

20%

Notes:
Print in PLA for smoother finish
There are thin membranes on both parts above the drill holes, so no support is required (I use Slic3r). Use a 4mm drill bit to puncture the membranes after the printing.
Before printing you should perform the Part Fitting calibration
Post-Printing
Bridging Membranes

Puncture the bridging membranes with a 4 mm drill bit
