this fidget is okay but what would be cooler is that handlecaves

hey some dude is selling these spinners at http://www.ehrenfidgets.com/ he isn't giving you credit and he is even implying that he designed them.

When you say "No you can not sell the design", is that referring to the .stl file and or the print I made using your design? Not that I plan on selling either one, I was just curious about that. Nice job!!

what type of bearing goes in the middle???

thanks for design and bearing size! My son had fun making

this is amazing and really stupid

can you send me the solidworks part file? I'd like to modify it

has this cut you at any point?

Not at all! The spike follows the arc of the top so when you spin it and touch it, you can't reach the edge before the spinner stopped spinning :)

when I spin it, it does not spin for long and vibrates when I change the angle that I'm holding it. Any sugestions?

u should try the berings

Comments deleted.

Remove the bearing shield and clean the bearing with some WD40, this should help a lot! The vibration is just normal with a spinner with only 2 bearing on the outside. If you don't like this I suggest printing the one with three bearings.

I wasted 4 prints figuring out the right size. I finally got the right size using scale 1.015. I am using repetier host. Hopefully this will help

Yeah I broke the 1st one that I made. I haven't done another yet, but I will try this measurement.

how many shells and what layer height?

plz answer

At least 2 shells. I use a layer height of .2 or .1 and a infill of at least 20% :)

Does increasing the infill help it turn better because of the weight?

i have 50 infill and is like 3 shells okay or is higher better?

sry btw new to 3d printing

No problem ;) with 3 shells and 50% infill it only will be stronger! If you have more questions, please ask!

ok thx and should i do a raft btw im printing on the maker bot replicator +

I never use a raft, i always use a skirt. It prints a couple of lines around the print

How does the skirt help?

I don't think the maker it has that but I can check

Then i will suggest not using one

Not using a raft or the printer?

May I have permission to sell this?

is it ok if I sell these please

hi to all people having trouble with the bearings being too big i found that if you load the stl in cura and scale the object to 1.01 instead of 1.0 it is still a tight fit like it should be hope this helps

What piece did you use in the center slot so it would spin?

I 3d printed out your spinner and bought VXB ZZ double shielded bearings. But when I went to put the bearings in, they were too big, so do you think it printed wrong? I used the wrong bearings? Or do you think it was another issue?

hi i found that in cura if you scale this to 1.01 instead of just 1.0 its a tight fit still but the bearing will fit

The spinner has holes of 22 mm, exacly the same as the diameter of the bearings. I think the issue is that your printer has a bigger tollerance than it should. I had the same problem before But i used a hammer to get the bearings into the print! Try to scale the print to 100.5 or 101% this could fix it!

Shouldn't you use a nut or bolt though so it has a point to rotate around?

Shouldn't you use a nut or bolt though so it has a point to rotate around?

you don't need to! you can hold the bearing in the middle and it will spin. It's easier to use something like a bearing cap (you can download these on thingiverse to) or as you said a nut or bolt.

What is the bearing reference number (608ZZ) ???

Yes! Just your average skateboard bearing :)

I want to buy this. Are you selling it? I love the design. What's the spin time ?
