Modifying a grill knob

Hi All,

 

I found a Weber grill knob on Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2449391 and it closely resembles the one I'm trying to 3D print in Cura for a Lulzbot Taz 6 printer using Windows 10.  In Tinkercad I can elongate the entire knob to the 65.532 mm length as designated here on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Weber-78960-Control-Genesis-1000-5500/dp/B0081H1VB6.... but Tinkercad doesn't seem to allow you to modify just the "stem" part - below the knob itself to 1 -3/8 length and 1/2 inch thick (wide). How could I do that in meshmixer? Thank you kindly

Can you sketch a schematic of the exact dimensions you want?

 

Looks like the model is currently 5mm tall:

I'm trying to help a library patron so the only specs they could share were the dimensions shared in that Amazon link which is the exact knob needed for his grill.

 

I wish I had more to go om.

You Amazon link is wrong.

From what I can see, this opening from the link:

is not the same as the model, this download will not work.

So you could very well rebuild this from scratch in Fusion, but you would need to know more of the schematics.

And just to answer your original question on how to lengthen the stem.

 

Select the stem > Deform > Face Transform:

Hi Andrew... All the specs I know about are the ones which appear on that Amazon page when you roll the mouse over I think it's he 2nd or 3rd graphic under the large photo the item revealing all sorts of measurements. That's all the library patron knows as well.

Maybe one of these might be better suited?

Hi Andrew... Thank you ever so much for creating that video.

 

I can't seem to download it to watch it offline.

 

Would you please share the .mp4 of that?

 

Thank you a again for all your kind help.

Sure see attached.

 

This one (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4373108) seems to have a more correct looking opening, but the dimensions are still not a 3/8 opening.

 

Still going to just be guessing if it will fit without further detailed schematics. I'll play around later.
