Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: How Does It Works ?
it's pretty simple somwhere, i used the " print in place " technic they are from 3D printing world
Step 2: Okay, But How ?
unless tell you how to do, i will show you.
Step 3: Desing Same in Your Favorite CAD Software
take in consideration you 3D printer nozzle measurements where i anotated, use spline for retrace at your measurements and juste apply a revolution extrusion (360° extrusion ) you got it
if you dosent have one, or dont know how to do, try this one ;)
export stl and go cura
Step 4: Slicer Time
same as explication, here is my parameters with a 0.4 nozzle and a custom model
Step 5: Finaly !
once you printed it, just pop out the print and add wd40 / silicon or any kind of lubricant and you done .
happy spining !
