    Send me the dimensions and I'll model it for you. Depending where you live, I could also print it if you cover shipping.

    That would be amazing. Thanks. I live in Pittsburgh. I'd love a printed prototype. Reading some of these posts - I'm wondering what the differences are between plastic types and printers, etc. I guess as long as it is similar to the original (not sure what they would have used) it'll be fine.

    You may be able to get it printed locally for cheaper than freight will be.

    I print in PLA mostly, the other option is ABS... PLA is generally better than ABS for most stuff, and prints much easier and nicer. My printer is relatively accurate, but it has its quirks.
    Heres a closeup of the quality from my current brotherhood build.

    I'm tempted by one of those cheap SLA printers...

    A few yrs ago there was a guy on here that was a Hollywood effects guy and did an excellent thread on how to mold and cast your own knobs. Lots of pictures and explanation. I'll search and see if I can give you a clue on how to find it.
