Keep busy this summer with our Fidget Spinner Design Challenge! Try your hand at designing a fidget spinner using Tinkercad, Fusion 360, or whichever 3D modeling program you like best. Get your copy of Fusion 360; it’s free for students, educators, and hobbyists.

For this challenge, all you need to do is design a 3D-printable fidget spinner, either from scratch or based on the instructions in this Instructable. Then, enter right here on the contest page by providing the STL file you’ve created. The winners of this contest will be taking home awesome prizes from the Digital Media Academy and Ultimaker including an Ultimaker 2 GO and fun prize packs containing a t-shirt, water bottle, VR cardboard kit, stickers, and giant foam finger! As a bonus, the best use of Tinkercad will get a $300 Amazon gift card.

Put your fidgety fingers to use by picking up your mouse and designing a fidget spinner that will put others to shame.

The Fidget Spinner Design Contest is closed.
