Thank you! I'm a 3D animator and I have experience working in 3Ds Max. I have learned to model 3D and export it for my printer. Thank you for the nice comment! :)

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I can create 3D animation in Autodesk 3Ds Max so I used that software to model the design and export it to my 3D printer.
The wheel is the largest part and it is 133mm x 133mm x 39mm.
Thank you! I was really inspired by this device and I so glad we have modern technology to be able to convert our ideas into reality and share with other creative people.
Yes he loves the camera. The trick is keeping him out of the shot. haha :)
I put a lot of hard work and time into this so I am glad to hear your nice comment! Thank you
Thank you for saying that! :)

3D Printed Speaker That Works!
I'm glad you made it! What is the Arduino for? I did not have that in my design. Yes double check that you have the exact same mosfet. They are all different. Yes a good wound coil is very helpful. I know it is slow and boring but do take your time and wind it as clean as you can. Mine has some overlapping but not much. Use a thinner magnet. My magnet was thin and light so better at floating. And rewatch the video for anything you might have missed. Keep me updated and let me know how it goes! Thank you!
Thank you! I believe I have seen premade commercial levitators on some cool tech websites. I think they would be better for what you need considering my tutorial is for very light weight materials. Good luck and post an update here if you find somehting cool that works for you!
It's possible but not as easy as what I show here. Magnets angled inward from below usually end up flipping the floating magnet over preventing it from staying up. Unless a computer controls subtle variations. It's something I want to look into and if I figure out a simple solution I will make a part 2 video! :)
It's so simple yet so effective! It turned out great, thanks for sharing this.

Thank you! :)
Thank you for saying that! I tried my best to keep it simple.
I'm happy to hear that! I'm glad my hard work paid off. Thank you for your comment.
I love clever prop making like this! Great job!

of course, I'm glad I could be helpful!
haha he's always an inspiration to me! Thank you.
Thank you very much! I totally agree about sanding being a pain! I hated it. It can be almost impossible depending on some shapes with close raised details or deep sockets like the nose of this skull. But anyways feel free to try this method! Have fun 3D printing!
No I haven't but since it's clear, I felt like i needed the paint to mix in there too so I can see when the layers are filled.
Thank you so much!
Yes! The mixture of polyurethane and paint will fill in the layers of any filament. Maybe not flexable filament but definitely ABS.
Awesome! I'm glad to hear that! :)
I didn't think about the strength changing. That is an interesting idea. Maybe a little but I am not sure by how much. I think of this method for more decorative pieces instead of under stress and pressure.
I didn't see anyone try this before either but I'm glad it works! I haven't tried that yet. I don't worry too much about the gloss since if I don't want the shine, I can spray with a clear matte spray. If I try anything new I will post an update.
The point I was trying to make in the shortest title is that for years I have searched how to melt or smooth filament and the results people would post were to use chemicals like Methylene Chloride, Dichlorometane, chloroform, Tetra Hydro Furan, Sodium Hydroxide, Oxolan and many other weird and hard to find chemicals.So my way uses spray paint and spray polyurethane which are two very common and widely used products that yes contain chemical (technically everything is chemicals) but are so much less dangerous than the alternatives listed above that I feel my way is different.
Thank you! I did notice some small details being lost since the mixture will fill in gaps of any kind. Maybe some very thin spray paint layers would help. I tend to get impatient when spray painting so I might have rushed it. Yes if you try it please post an update here as to how it turned out.
You might be right haha. Thank you for your comment and I am glad you enjoyed it!

Thank you so much! Yes! This could be a great movie prop. I could see it in blade runner, minority report, mission impossible, something like that. I'm a big movie fan and I think it's fun to create props so I will be making more!

Oh I didn't know about that. I would like to hear the comparison. Thanks for letting me know.
That's great! It took me a lot longer with the razor blade but it is so amazing that it actually can work.
Yes this will only recieve AM stations.
It might work but I hear most people recommend the 1N34A germanium diode for best results. If you try it and it does work, let us know. Thank you.
Yes I am impressed with how quiet this fan is. It is a good addition to have. I am glad you liked this so thank you for the comment!
Wow that sounds like a fun father and son project! Yes I hope I revitalized peoples interests in this great educational and entertaining project.
Thank you for saying that!
Good to keep in mind but I looked at my sink and I have plastic pipes but it still works. So I was trying to make sense of that. Maybe there is enough metal in the whole sink for the current to flow to. Or maybe the current can flow from the pressured water in the pipe down until it eventually reaches metal or the actual ground. Not sure but I think mine worked ok. An actual metal rod stuck in the ground might be an alternative for troubleshooting.
This would be a great father and son bonding project. And thank you I am happy with how the 3D printed frame turned out.
Yes! A very fun project. I could see a teacher 3D printing several of these sets for a classroom and the students could keep the radios. That would really be a memorable class project.
And hearing that puts a smile on my face. :) I'm glad to hear that and thank you I am trying my best to improve my videos.
Yes I heard about the capacitor but I was happy with how clear mine sounded but I guess it kind of depends on how close you are to the radio tower.
