Works great. Even better with a spray of wd40!

Great design works really well.
I saw this same design at Instructables. Where you the original designer?


I am the original designer of what you see above. I after I designed it I found like 2 or 3 that are very similar. I was copying a toy someone would have bought at a party store, but tried to improve on it. Didn't expect to already see others with designs out there.

Really cool, thanks! My boy loves it and is now driving us totally mad with it.

It's worth printing the top the other way up so that the outside is nice and flat...

I'm going to take a look at modifying the top so that it slips on rather than glues on... will upload when I get a chance

I went through a few designs when I finally uploaded this. My first snapped into place like you are describing. I ended up scrapping that idea because everyone's printer seems to print ever so slightly off, and the tolerances would need to be perfect make a nice seal.

Good luck and let me know if you have any issues or need any help!

Yeah, I know I've had issues getting things to fit snug... can be frustrating.

I ended up leaving around 1mm gap around all sides, I guess it could be reduced slightly to make a more snug fit.

However I was surprised to see that even when not fitting 100% snugly, it works as well as my previous superglued effort...

Thanks for the design!
