Anyone who followed the "door handle actuator" thread will know who this refers to....... As he seems a bit "shy" .... I'll not mention any names here.... (feel free to take credit Brian) LOL

After working with him for a short period of time, measuring, testing, providing feedback on the 3D printed actuators.... He expressed his gratitude (and I was the thankful one) for my minor efforts....

Once he learned of my daughter's name (always referred to in the past as "my daughter"winking smiley... he whipped up the shift knob in the photo.....

Denali (Cat is out of the bag now) was absolutely thrilled...... It won't be her "regular use knob"... but she promises to put it in place for every car show she ever attends.... as well as to impress her friends (once she's old enough to drive).....

Is this cool or what??

Thanks B...... She loves it......

3D printers are fun indeed. Getting a solid unmarked surface for the lettering and top of the knob is not easy, and likely was printed upside down with some supports. I'd be curious on what the infill percentage is, as well as how many shell layers for the outside portions there were.

I made a steering wheel insert for my Mk3. 3D printing is ideal for low strength brackets, clips, etc.
