Q: What do you get if you cross a snowflake with a gimbal?
A: A gyroscopic snowflake!
It actually works!
Can there be any better Christmas decoration?
There are three variants:
-small , (Gimbal snowflake star small.STL)
-medium (Gimbal snowflake star.STL) and
-big (Gimbal snowflake.STL).
I made an other one: Small, shape of a snowflake and a little thinner. Quick to print.
(Gimbal snowflake small and flat.STL), see http://www.thingiverse.com/image:213186
If snowflakes within snowflakes (flakeception?) are a thing you are into, then check out my other snowflake thing: Shadowflake
- Print it (maybe scale it before).
- Gently twist the parts to release the parts from each other (be careful!).
- Attach some (invisible) string and hang it anywhere you like.
- Please give Feedback.
- Enjoy your gyroscopic / gimbal snowflake!
