I wanted an encoder knob built to my exact specifications. There are probably many compatible models I could download and modify for my purposes, but I wanted to try anyway. I made the measurements on the encoder I planned for this project, which had a flatted shaft. Many similar-looking potentiometers used a ribbed stem, so designing one was practical since the flatted style was less common and more expensive.

The design phase went well, and my first print fit snuggly over the flatted stem, as I hoped. My design had twelve ribs on the perimeter, but the encoder has twenty divisions, so I will change that in the next print.
