It seems many other Creators have ended up at the same design

etsy and ebay has them for sale

Iprinted one for my friends son, As a gift, but it made me wonder since he thought i bought it online, turns out people even molded "their designs" to make them copper or metal

took me 3 tries to get the right print, had to use a raft, since the skirt or brim would not hold to the build plate :/

Thanks for the message.
Every week i come across people trying to sell it.
I send them an email saying they can't sell it and most of the times they remove it imediately.
I sell them myself on Etsy and the other people selling the exact design have my permission to do so (says in their describtion).
Other people copied the design and made some changes, totally fine with that (if its not to similair of course) because almost every spinner is the same.

What kind of printer do you have? And does it have an heated bed?
I personally have 0 issue with build adhesion while printing it.

its a monoprice mini

i've noticed everything prints better on this with rafts, granted i have yet to get better at tweaking

but mostly everything is ok with rafts from cura

What is the best bearing for this spinner??

If you made it to the right dimensions, i recommend bone reds, best ones i have. I use them mostly for skateboarding but had to get an extra set. They spin the longesr and are the quietist


My daughter and I printed five different designs of fidgets and this one is easily the best. Nice weight and long spin. The bearings fit tightly unlike some of the other fidget designs. Well done!

Is the first image a product of your design or did you find it and designed it for 3D printing? I want to know if I could acquire it online, my 3D printer doesn't print as fluently as I'd like it too nor do I have a metallic gold colored 3D ink for it.

The first picture is a render I made. I designed and made the spinner using solidworks but I don't share the files. What kind of problems do you have with printing?

What is the mass of this? I will have to pay to print this in grams. So I would like to know. Thank you.

That would depend on many factors, ie. infill settings,wall thickness, base and top layers aswell as the filament you are using. for your sake lets say 10grams

Thank you

but on what axis do i put it in the x, y, or z

thank you so much!!!!!!!

could you also give me the Outer Diameter, Inner Diameter, and Thickness of the bearings

i love this print but sadly i dont know the ball bearing size and how to assemble could you plz help me

normal skateboard bearings, 608zz, 22mm in diameter and 7 mm in height. Just push the bearings inside the holes with a little bit of force :) Id suggest to scale it to 100.5 before you print it!

Would you allow me to sell these in my local area? (classmates, family, friends, etc.)

I would like to know too.

ive made many of these, because i like them a lot, but every time there's always a crack in the same area, roughly on the opposite side of the circle from the point of the spike, please try to make this possibly thicker to prevent this

You get the crack while you put the bearings inside it? Try scaling the model to 100.5 or 101!

can i get the link to the bearings for the current size now

Any 608zz bearing will do!

Cool design and im defiantly going to print this, also nice rendering skills

I printed this for school MySelf and it works great thanks for the design. I am looking to make two more so if you have any more designs or suggestions please tell me.

Hey Guys, if you want to see my vision of this spinner, check it out!!!
It is much more strong and much better in general than this one and will hold up for much longer.


Hope you enjoy :DD

It works great, my son loves it. We scaled to 101% and printed with 50% infill. He used a small hammer to tap the bearings in; perfect fit. Very nice, thanks for sharing :)

Great to hear that! Hope he has alot of fun with it :)

Same here. Would like to print and sell. Let me know please.

Hey, I'm thinking about selling this design. What are your requirements? Am I allowed to sell it?

Hello, I'm unable to fit 608 bearings into the spinner. Please help me, I love the design :)

I had this problem myself a couple of times! Use a hammer to carefully hit it in or scale the stl file to 100.5 or 101% so it fits better!

You should probably make a horizontal layout version.

Hello, I don't have that big of hands. They are about 15.3 cm from palm to tip of middle finger. Will this be easy to use?

you may have some difficulties using it with one hand, two hands will be no problem!

Ok. Thank you so much! look forward to using it and spreading the word about it!


Noobie here, so forgive me. ;-)

How do you give it that metallic sheen? I have gold ABS I'm planning on using, but didn't know if you added a gloss or maybe acetone vapors?


the first picture is actually a render ;) the second picture is the actual print!

LOL! See, I'm Noobie. ;-) I'm excited to print this! I'll definitely leave a photo when complete. :-) Thanks!!

Hope you enjoy it! Looking forward to see the result!!

is it art or there is some kind of utility? I am sorry if my question sounds noob to you...

No absolutely not! I had the same thing when I first saw one. Its a fidget spinner, a variation of the fidget Cube. Just a fun toy to keep your hands busy! It can have positive effects on things like when you try to quit smoking or when someone has ADHD. Just print one and try it out yourself ;)

Ok cool! Thanks for the quick reply. I gues I still need to buy some bearings?

Correct! Any 608 (skateboard) bearing will do, best results with a ceramic in the middle :)

This Desing is free? I can use for comercial/professional services?

The design is only free for personal use. It contains the cc non commercial license so no you can Not use it for commercial/professional use!

Can i buy you the design?

Hey, I really like this design. I think you made it really easy to spin but also has a lot of style.
I was wondering what software did you use to make it.

I used solidworks :)

Can you include the sldprt as well because I use solidworks and it is hard for me to import and print stl, how t you so it (every time I import the file it is 100x bigger than it should be)

I made it. Found it to be bulky and difficult to operate with one hand. The design is perfect for being slightly uncomfortable when it hits part of your had. Without matching caps, it just didn't work correctly. The sharp pointy things are a great for a challenge to touch correctly to accelerate the device while avoiding the slight discomfort. However it looks RAD.

So I buy bearings, put them in and that is it?

Yes that's it!

How light was the spinner at 50 infill? I want something a little bit more on the heavy side but I do not have enough material for a duplicate spinner.

I actually Have No idea how heavy it is. I just chose the 50 infill to make it Strong!

Hi, and thank you for your model it is really great !! I just have a small question, what is the diameter of the bearings?

Thank you! The diameter is 22 mm, the size of a standard skateboardbearing!

Hello, what software did you use for the rendering ?

Hi, I used Keyshot 5 :)

I didn't know it, I love the result, I'll try with sketchup. What 3D software did you use to create your model ?

I used solidworks!

Thanks, very nice thing btw ;)

Thank you! Hope you enjoy it! :)
