WAWWWWW what amazing..............................................LANDFILL TRASH /= ....Stop with the useless trinkets that end up being garbage sooner than later... for real guys wake up ...Be responsible. as makers we must realize that we are a fast growing population and printing this such garbage is not cool or sustainable...and that is the truth.. find something useful to make. why funking fidget spinners??? learn a useful talent instead of being a professional garbage maker!!

hey some dude is selling these spinners at http://www.ehrenfidgets.com/ he isn't giving you credit

Thanks for letting me know. I guess somebody doesn't understand what a Attribution Non-Commercial license is. Maybe I should harass them a bit :-)

I just made one for my daughter. Used 608 as weights and added caps with a cat face for the 608 weights (with a quick and dirty patch in your scad file). Will add a photo of it in a "Made" tomorrow.
Great design and thanks.

I'm glad the design worked for you! I'm looking forward to seeing your Make. By the way, here are a few 608 bearing cap designs you might want to experiment with: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2444311

Under "which weight" select penny. If something isn't working, please let me know.

can u add pennies

Hey!! great design! can u add something for weights????

Can you add an option to have pennies as weights?

I added options for US coins, but I'm not sure how Abe Lincoln will look with whiskers and ears :)

Thank you! well here is an idea, could be possible to have bottom and top layers with the coins option or with any option for that matter? That way I can add a pause just before the top layer begins so the coins are enclosed .-)

Yes, I can probably get to it tomorrow.

Awesome, thank you, my daughter will love this

It would be great if central bearing can be changed, in example to a 24mm 609 bearing. they are out of stock.

I could probably add different bearing options. Somebody just posted a make with a smaller bearing. I'll let you know when I'm done.

Great, it is a very nice design with balls. The fisrt 608 alretnative I found is 609.

I added the option for a center bearing other than 608. There were so many different bearings that I'm requiring that outside diameter and height in mm be entered manually.

Hopefully somebody has made a bearing cap customizer, because my bearing caps will only work for bearings with 608 dimensions.

Excelent, you have excelent designs. Thanks.

Hi..

I don`t see a 5/16" 3 cat one?? only a 2 cat one or am I not seeing it?

You didn't see the "Open in Customizer" button. Click on it then select the number of cats and which type of weight. http://www.thingiverse.com/apps/customizer/run?thing_id=2183228

Your new .stl file will show up after a while under "My Things" in the top menu.

You can always use Jam nuts as well. THey are ~2/3 the thickness of a standard nut, so it will bee about the same thickness as the bearings at 7/16. 1/2" nut is ~8mm thick. :)

Thanks for the info! I'm going to try to find some jam nuts.

Came out sweet. Here is the 1/2" Jam nuts installed. Sleek! DOH, no pics can be attached in comments, see my make then. Thanks!

Thanks again for the jam nut tip. I used them in a few different models of spinners, and they work really well. (I added a pic of one here.)

Glad it worked well for you. I went a step further with mine and used a 1/2" drill and removed the threads. I was picturing a kid winding themselves up tight threading their finger in the nuts! Thanks again for the models!

Drilling sounds like a good idea too. Hopefully I have a 1/2" drill bit. I'm not a kid, but I did stick my finger in a nut and got cut by a burr :(

It's probably nice and heavy and big too without having to use additional, pricier 608 bearings. I like it!

Brilliant design. Can you please upload 3 head small version without wights.

Here's one without weights: http://www.thingiverse.com/download:3708420

You can also customize the size and number of cats. Select "none" under "Which Weight" in Customizer:http://www.thingiverse.com/apps/customizer/run?thing_id=2183228

Thank you very much :)

Thanks. A version without weights? Wouldn't the cats need eyes, a nose and a mouth?
