    Complex Knobs

    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to figure out how to make complex knobs such as the ones seen on the 737 EFIS.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to make them? Namely... theres the RADIO/MINS/BARO rotary knob and the IN/BARO/HPA knobs which have two levels of rotating selectors. More still, there's buttons "RST" and "STD" on these knobs.

    In putting my EFIS panels together I have learned quite a bit from http://www.hispapanels.com/cabina737/. However, the knobs as such I bought fom Opencockpits.

    Hi there!

    For the EFIS you can use a Dual Encoder with Pushbutton.
    hyamesto, the person above me linked you a knob which is not for the EFIS.

    Download the EFIS knobs from here.
