The fidget spinners are crazy, but when everybody has one, I want something else.
So I designed an inclosed 'puck' box, with a spinner inside. You 3D-print this design with only three parts and add two skate bearings.
I printed one black puck and a transparant one. I really like the transparant because you can see the spinner, spin inside.
The two halves of the puck easily screw closed with the spinner centered inside.
Step 1: You Will Need
- two skate bearings
- 3D printer
- hammer or vice
And that's it!
Step 2: The Design
This is my first design in Fusion360 :) So I'm impressed with the result.
There is one spinner with two standard skate bearings. (22mm x 7mm with 8mm hole)
The two shells of the puck screw together. Fusion360 has a really easy function to create threat. (Thank you Maker's Muse for the tutorial) and it prints without problems.
The STL-files are added.
Step 3: Printing
I printed this on my new (second hand) 3D-printer; Createbot Mini.
- 210 C
- fill: 30%
- no support
- bed: 60 C
Step 4: Finnish
- Use a hammer or vice (or really strong person) to push het bearings in the spinner.
- Put the spinner with one of the bearings (the best one) in the peg of one of the shells.
- Screw the other shell on top of the shell with the spinner.
Spin the spinner bij moving and vibrating the puck in your hand.
Try to put it away again....
