We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Due to the recent incidents (things appearing on ebay) I just want to make something very clear:
I do not allow any commercial use of my STL-files, my designs and my photos!
A real ball bearing needs a cage to separate the balls. So I changed my first ball bearing ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:56298 ) to 8 balls and added a cage.
I was a little suprised that the cage really improves the function of the bearing.
You can see the difference in this video:
If you want to print this bearing you will need a well calibrated printer. Use a layer hight of 0.1mm. After printing all parts (and the cage in particular) must be deburred perfectly.

So what's this mean?
We're sure blecheimer 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!
