645n Exposure Compensation Dial

Hi there, I was hoping someone would be able to help out. I recently had a moment while out and the exposure compensation dial on my 645n broke off and was lost. It looks to be that the spindle (Correct term?) is what had broken and is currently stuck set at +1/3.

So far I have had no luck on trying to source a replacement, and had been considering trying to find someone to Maybe 3D print a new dial, instead of going down the buy a for parts unit route.

Any guidance on this would be incredibly appreciated.






Any

I actually have the same issue with one of my cameras. Looking to 3d print a replacement part soon. First have to cad it up.

Do you have / are you able to CAD design the dial?

I got the manual hoping to use it to debug a power regulator issue. not getting very far there. But it does have a blow up and assembly instructions. For the dial depending on how your is broken it might be simple cosmetic fix or you might have to disassemble to fix the issue.
