Ninja Star and Stand by rikkilambo Jan 24, 2013

Description

Modeled after a real ninja shuriken, this thing empowers aspiring ninjas to rid the world of evil. This thing has been printed, tested, and thrown. Sticks to cardboard if thrown hard enough.

Background Information:
A shuriken is a traditional Japanese concealed weapon that was generally used for throwing, and sometimes stabbing or slashing. They are sharpened hand-held blades made from a variety of everyday items, such as needles, nails, and knives, as well as coins, washers, and other flat plates of metal. Shuriken are commonly, and mistakenly, known in the West as "throwing stars" or "ninja stars" though they took many different shapes and designs during the time they were used.

Features:
* 5-spoke design
* 100mm diameter
* 4mm thick
* fits in your hand

Credits:
Engineered for additive manufacturing by Riki Lam.

Print the star (ninjastar.stl) flat.
Print the stand (ninjastand.stl) the way it is oriented.
A really nice model, but a big minus is that i had to use half and hour to get the star to lay down, so that i can print it, basicly, this model is unprintable

LOL - well, it's a skill worth learning, it shouldn't take you more than about 10 seconds next time! :-)
Totally agree haha
how do i rotate the ninja star so it is flat?
Most 3D printers come with a software that lets you preview before you print. Use that software to rotate the model.
Prints great love it
