A hamster wheel that looks somewhat like a Stargate Universe gate. It had to be that model since it's the one that spins! However, some "dimensional liberties' had to be taken in order to fit a hamster inside.
The wheel rides on a base using three 608 skate bearings. Thanks to the metal on plastic contact, it also rumbles like a real gate, giving you advance warning if your hamster tries to dial out. However, if you're not a fan of loud sounds, consider putting tires of some sort on the bearings.
The entire assembly is about 265 mm or 10.5 inches tall. The wheel does not fit on my printer all at once so it was printed in following parts:
- 1 x Ramp
- 1 x BaseLeft
- 1 x BaseRight
- 3 x Wheel Middle Slice
- 6 x Wheel Top Slice
- 3 x Bearing holder (this goes inside the bearing and then a screw goes through the holder into the base.
