Molding or 3D Printing Obsolete Knobs, Buttons, etc.?
I have a very nice piece of gear that has a couple of missing buttons. I have been watching that auction site for years and have yet to see any come up for sale. They are uniquely shaped so there aren't really any substitutes. They are machined aluminum. I would be happy with reasonable looking plastic reproductions.
Is there any service that will duplicate a small part like this? I might even be willing to buy quite a few in order to make it worth the setup cost for the molding or (scanning and) printing.
I've even thought of getting a printer and scanner myself and starting a service like this but I'm already pretty busy. I wonder how much demand there is...?
