Intro: DIY 3D Printed Fidget Spinner

In this instructable you will learn how to build a great working fidget spinner as well as learing some basics of 3D printing!

Step 1: What You Need

To build this awesome fidget spinner you will need-

  • A 3D Printer (i have a CTC 12308)
  • 4 Skateboard Bearings
  • a computer and SD card

Step 2: Downloading and Splicing

You will need to first download the files and open them into an application such as Cura and change the infill on bothe the spinner and the caps to 100.Then splice the file onto your sd card.

*I did not design these files! below are the links to the original website in which i downloaded them from.

Step 3: Printing

Now heat up your printer and select your file to print, I prefer to print each component individually. It took my 3D printer 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Lastly place the bearings into any of the holes (you may need to file them) and then press the caps into the middle bearings and use epoxy to hold them in permanently.
