Kit Business Cards seem pretty cool...

And then this Frankenstein's Monster happened.

Post-Printing

Removing from the print plate

Slow and steady wins the race

General notes.

You could go ahead and give a little trip to the gears where they were connected to the Edge for a finer result.

Putting it together

I used a vice and it basically solved all of my problems here,
Although I am sure a hammer or a strong friend would do just fine.

Violence is permitted.

How I Designed This

Inventor by Autodesk

2016 Student edition, highly recommended. I have included the Inventor file if you want to change or check anything, a good opportunity to learn as any!

Custom Section

Adding your own text

I have included 2 ZIP files, one with a name, extract the contents to a normal folder.
If you have Inventor 2016 or newer on your computer just open the Assembly file, where is says "Text" you double click a few times until you go into edit mode, Change what you like.

Use the arrow on the top right to go back to the part and click extrude, you go extrude the text outward or inward (removing matter).

Use the arrow again to go to the assembly and click on the little "I" on the top left, go to "Export" and "CAD FORMAT". Change file type to "STL" if it isn't already set to it and enjoy you personal fidget card!

(Spur Gears are found under the "Card" folder)

printed flat on my bed. over all print was good. pegs and holes are different sizes. I personally would like the peg width to be wider so there is less play in the gears. but all in all I had to glue it together but it works well.

Can you put up a video of how to put it together?

I had trouble with this print at the point to which the parts hanging from the top down would not star. just string up where the hang, any ideas?

The holes seem to be too big for the pegs.

Yeah, looks like it works only with glue.

Agreed - cannot find a way to assemble

What layer height?

Roughly one mm, doesn't really matter, it mostly depends on your printer

did you print this vertically like the model shows or should i turn it 90 degrees?

For the decreased print time and overall quality I would recommend you to turn it 90 degrees, although you should be aware that the joints that are meant to be broken should touch the print-plate. Good luck!
