This looks super awesome! Is it balanced? Are there any counterweights?

i printed it at 100% so it has enough weight on its own. I dont like the spinners that spin for hours. That defeats the entire purpose of a fidget device. It is fairly well balanced, but not perfect like a symmetrical design would be, but I like it that way.

I love the look of this multi-part design however I am not sure how the center bearing and finger cap work. Is that a regular 608zz bearing. Could it possibly be made without the need for the bolt?

Yes its a standard 608 bearing. You can print a cap that doesnt require the bolt, but the tolerances are so tight that you can print one cap that fits perfect and one that is too snug or too loose. By printing a cap that i know will fit 100% of the time and using the bolt to hold it together i never have issues with the caps falling out. Even if you get them to fit right, they will get loose over time.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Do you have any assembly instructions?
Looking at your printed picture it looks like there is a bolt through the center.

Thanks,

Dan

The pieces all fit together pretty snug. You can put a touch of super glue on it if needed. You need a T4 7mm nut and bolt for the center cap. I get them at ace.
