3d printed Mode Dial for k-01

so after a bit of searching and annoyance at how easily this part is lost, i found a forum member with lots of 3d printing experience. he has been VERY kind as far as mocking up a 3d printer file in his spare time, still a bit of work to go, but this is essentially where its at
need to take some measurements of the dial without the cap etc. but this was done from the measurements provided in another thread on here.
with any luck a cheap replacement will be printable soon!

Great news. There will be a few takers. My own Mode dial has stayed on (touch wood) since I fixed it with silicon. But I was lucky it fell off on the seat of the car where I saw it.

Awesome, any idea on an estimated price with shipping? I'd probably take 2.

Anyone with a hobby metal lathe could turn on up out of aluminium. You could probably turn one up on a wood lathe out of a hard wood like Kwila.

Even if i don't have a K-01, it's things like this that makes me proud to be part of that community. People are just devoted and passionate about photography in general and Pentax in particular. Nice job !

If you are thinking of a somewhat sizeable run, you can probably contract with an overseas CNC machine shop to make them out of aluminum with engraved top markings for just a few bucks a piece. As always, the primary cost is in the setup.

Anyone still looking for a mode dial for their K-01? I made a couple and posted some months ago but no takers. Today I found a couple I printed, wrapped in a paper towel. Sat them down and forgot about them. Any way, I don't know anyone with a K-01 to test them on, so I don't know if the index holes is the correct size or correctly located. If anyone is willing to test, let me know!

Looks like I could use one. Would you be interested in posting the file for it up here, or a thingiverse link?
