We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a DIY art. This was one of the first project I printed on my 3D-Printer. Just a really cool thing to have. :)

Basically, print all the parts. You will need to print some trays more the once. Buy the things needed and assemble. It's the printing that takes time. :)
The motor: I used an old cam timer motor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cam_timer
But anything with a low gear will work. All depending on what speed you want of course.

So what's this mean?
We're sure Snille would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
