I often need to check what the month and date is during my work day. (I can remember the year :) This calendar is very simple - a holder and three rings, one for the months (1-12), one for the day 'tens' (nothing, 1, 2 or 3) and one for the day 'ones' (0-9). The rings fit in the holder from the back, and today's date appears in the window. I printed the month in a different color (orange) from the day (purple). You can have the US order month-day or the European order day-month. You change the date manually by repositioning the rings.


I printed it on a Makerbot 2 in PLA using standard settings, no supports. The wheels could probably benefit from being printed at higher resolution to get the numbers to look cleaner.

Why not make the 10s ring "0,1,2,3,0,1,2,3,0,1,2,3"? Or you could replace the 0s with blanks.

Can you make a version for the full date "31.12.2013"?

Hi radus - the main goal of the calendar was to help me remember the day and month part of the date as I am at work. I guess I have less trouble remembering the year :-) so I hadn't thought about doing what you suggest.
