I ordered a cm2 and would love to have detents. I seen that there are people who have made them for theirs but I don’t have a 3D printer. 
 

anybody around here willing to sell me a set or point me to someone who does/will?

Virpil haven't sold the CM2 for a while now.  Where did you order it from?

I’m in the US in Tennessee.  I think there’s a printout of the cad model in the post in the virpil forum. I’ll go see if I can find it and bring a link back

yep exatcly what i meant 🙂 well i think i could print them out. I only got an SLA Printer, so the parts would be resin. but with shipping to the US, it might be as expensive as you would take that to a printshop in the US. There is a youtuber, called Uncle Jessy, he has a shop. mabye thats a solution for you.

If you cant find anyone else im helping you out :;)

there are many other like him, best you google it 🙂

coulnd find anything specific. Arroud 20 to 40€. should be around 15 to 35 Dollar. On top you need the Resin, overall i think it will be arround 50 to 60€ would need to slice the file first, so i can say how much Resin i would need 🙂

I would be kind of leery of those designs that use ball plungers.  That Is I wouldn't spend much money getting it printed.  I can't see that being very long lasting riding a steel ball plunger on cheap thermoplastic.  I never bothered to print one of those for that reason.  Along with the fact sourcing hardware like ball plungers is a pita in my country.

That’s really why I want to buy it from someone who is/has fome it for themselves. They’ll know more about it amd they’ll also probably have some of the ball plungers I can buy with it.

The plunger doesn’t ride the plastic in my designs. There are M3 screws that interact with the plungers.

I  never saw that thread on the other forum before or the videos, I came across those many times on thingiverse but made an assumption that the ball plungers run on plastic, seeing no instructions on thingiverse is why I never printed them. 

 

I made one just now for my CM throttle to try (assuming Virpil ever replies to my support ticket and agrees to fix it before the warranty runs out on the 19th).  Ali-express sells ten packs of ball plungers for about 2 bucks so I just ordered a pile of them and will try it out when they show up.

I can print the parts for you and send them together with the required hardware. However, I don’t have time for sanding and finishing the parts. You’ll have to do that yourself, or just accept that they look 3D printed.

Sounds good to me. 
I dont mind sanding but I’m not even sure I care about the cosmetics enough for it to matter. 
how much?
