A coworker brought her young son into the office recently, and he excitedly showed and told me all about his fidget spinners. Being familiar with my position, he asked if I could make him one. So here we are…
Designed during a lunch break, and cobbled together from found parts that were going to be thrown away otherwise (the office is relocating).
19 mm OD x 7 mm ID x 6 mm THK Bearing – Found loose in a desk. It’s not McMaster 5972K261, but that should fit.
M10 nut – x3. Found bagged in a cabinet. Might be McMaster 90725A720.
Print Out Parts
Files can be found on MyMiniFactory*. Fidget spinners have saturated the 3D printing realm, so there’s really no need to broadcast this everywhere. Print one of each part, except FS-Center. You need two of those.
March 2020 UPDATE: Files can be downloaded directly from this site at the bottom of the page. They are also available on Prusa Printers!
Everything press-fits together.

*Design was tweaked for release. Yours is still one-of-a-kind, P.
