Hey, is there anyway someone could link me to a gcode about 85% the size of the original? I can not get slicer to export, it keeps shutting down on me when I try to export this.

Instructions

I printed this on my Ultimaker at .1mm layer height and it came out great. The rings are lightly locked in place when first removed off the bed. Simply force each ring to rotate on is axis and after a revolution or two it should spin smoothly

Do you think that you could make a uranium atom? I have a LOT of radioactive green plastic and need something awesome to make. I know that I could just print roman_hegglin's, but I really like how you put the atomic symbol on the inside circle.
I love this idea. I'll see what I can do
Thank you. You get the official seal of epicness.
You know, I just realized that you have figured out the secret to building atoms.
( and they say matter cannot be created or destroyed MUAHAHAHAHA! )
Like Emmett, I too would like to have a customizer that would be able to make any atom that you wanted. That would be so awesome! Science in action!
I just had an amazing idea! print 117 atoms and line them up to match the periodic table. A bit ridiculous but with the magic of 3D printing and this brilliant design could (theoretically) be done!
And print every atom in the color of this element. Would be amazing!
You can do it now with the customizable atom.
Do it! That would be amazing - and SO fun for chemistry teachers to use in their classrooms!
Damned nice looking thing!
Thank you, Jkrassman
Awesome, but can you make it customizable to create any atom?
A chalenge indeed!
I made a customizable to create any atom:

That would be cool, but I did this in Blender and it doesn't lend itself to that
Sounds like a challenge!
What settings did you use in Customizer?
Evamvid,I can't recall specifically but it was 7 rings with the maximum spacing between them and the rest was set at defaults I believe
Thanks....the reason I asked was because I'm now trying to make a customizable version (as bvac said, sounds like a challenge)!
