Canada 150 Birthday Fidget Spinner
It’s Canada’s birthday, so let’s celebrate with a sweet spinner. This is my little tribute as a new Canadian.
To make the spinner you will need the following:
- 6x Canadian quarters ($1.50)
- 1x 608 bearing
I printed ABS 0.3mm layers at 70% infill with 3 solid layers top and bottom. The maple leaf is to the print bed.
I applied a small amount of Elmer’s glue stick to the face of 3 coins and placed them on the print bed to dry.
At the 15th layer I dropped in a quarter in each pocket.
This was repeated at the start of the 18th layer I dropped in the remaining 3 quarters glue side up. You may need to check what your last layer is before it closes in.
The bearing is press fit in. I used a touch of glue to secure the caps. There are probably better ones out there.
