That is very nice! Like your solution to connecting triangles.

Thank you very much! I need to find a better solution to connect them anyway, something like snapfit for example.

I've tried lots of different approaches to connecting triangles. Here is one that is a variation on your approach. http://bartels.posthaven.com

Realy nice work! The approache that i'm searching is using no glue at all, in your case you glue those hinges with epoxy right?
I'll work on my connctions to make them much easier to use

As long as you're using isosceles triangles you could use snap connectors similar to the piece I have here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1619050 for attaching the wood to the acrylic rod. You would have the open circle on both ends of the piece, not just one. You could also make your rods on the triangles much shorter then too.

This was my first idea, but those pieces were too small to my 3d printer ( maybe they aren't but i had no time to verified it)
Internal diameter of my snaps must be 2 or 2.1 mm, so i need to do some prototypes to make it work well...
anyway thank you very much for your help, i think that i'll download stl file of micro spinner and will study it a bit!

Yes, I used glue. Good luck with snap connectors!
