Description

The standard knob of Ultimaker did not really appeal to me because it was relatively difficult, e.g. to set the temperatures from 0 to 240 ° C.
With this rotary knob you can enter such values quickly.

Update 05.02.2017:

Increase the outside diameter of the knob by 1.50 mm.
Acceleration of the printing process.

Removing the existing rotary knob from Ultimaker:

Behind the existing rotary knob of Ultimaker there is a transparent protective housing, which is illuminated by the LED's. At the rear of the protective housing there is a small opening. With a screwdriver you can push the knob of the potentiometer through the opening.
But be careful, do not use a lot of pressure!

I have uploaded new pictures, which clarify the process.

Sorry for my bad English.
