      I received a box today from Shapeways. It is one of two orders I've placed with them - each in a different plastic.

      I've got CAD drawings of the knob if anyone knows a reasonable SLA 3D print shop. I don't think rigidity would be a problem because setting the clock doesn't require a lot of force. I think the...

      1/4" is the size you'll want. That width will allow you to cover the entire surface. The hard part is getting the material to stick to the rounded edge which is why I had to use an adhesive. I used a...
