We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Fitting weather vane:
This thing is fully parameterizable and meant to be customized before printing.
It is optimized for support-less printing (blades are oriented vertically)
and designed out of two parts so that even on small build-space printers pretty big propellers can be made. The appended *.stl file is only an example. Customize the model to get the biggest propeller you can print (almost twice the diagonal of your build-platform length).
One could print a lot of them as toy propellers in different colors all with different random parameters in reasonable margins and mount them on a kind of "wind sculpture".
Right now its just a toy but one could:
Print diagonally on build plattform for maximal size.

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