looking for stubby ball stud

Hi, I can't find the source for these kinds of neck-less ball studs:


The stud needs to be M3 and the ball 3/8" (preferred, but I will take 10mm)
thanks

Im pretty sure Haydns are what you are looking for.

Go to Thingiverse,search for 'Zero-Backlash Magnetic Ball Joint Rod Ends' and drop Haydn an email.

They are listed as addons to the smart effector at [www.duet3d.com]. If you email info at Duet3D dot com, I expect they will be happy to supply them on their own unless stocks are running low.

I got the dimensions from Haydn and they are longer than those in the picture that I thought they would fit my setup.
However, I checked again and I can make them work, just need to have more care than before. The duet3d and the Ultibot ball-studs appear to be identical.
Trick Laser has their ball-cap rod-ends back in stock but I need to see if they will fit my machine. Otherwise, I will have them printed at Shapeways, although it won't be as accurate as the injection-molded Trick Laser parts. BTW, the Trick Laser parts have 5mm-wide shanks so the rods will need to be very large (I think archery shafts are the intended source)
thanks for your help!
