We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Since a Thing-a-Week was too often, it's time to try a thing-a-day!

It would be useful for building robots to be able to cheaply and easily create a rotating connection between two 3D printed parts. This is an initial test using rivets. None of these tests produced a joint that rotated freely, but this might be useful for connection where friction is desirable such as pose-able stop motion figure.

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