Hey guys. When I try to load this in FlashPrint, it just loads the whole hinge already assembled. Is there anyway to separate the pieces so I can assure movement in the hinge?

It seems to be designed to print in place. Just print the STL as-is, and it will come out assembled and swinging.

It does indeed... here's a little clip of the hinge in action, from @dtaylor2008 on twitter:


Makedo, your toys are fantastic, I could go on and on...

What's more fantastic than your toys? Well, you being here on Thingiverse giving away perfect designs for new parts, for free.

I printed 8 of those hinges and they're just perfect.

But again, I can't believe that's your own account. That's the maker spirit! What other brand does that seriously?

You rock! High and hard! Tip of the top, belle of the ball.

Huge respect.

Will come back to post pics of creations.

Many thanks, we are excited to share and further enable the Makedo cardboard construction experience in this way.
It will be great to see what you make, remake and make again!
Add your own custom printed parts, or even some electronics (LittleBits, Makey Makey, Squishy Circuits etc) for even more fun...

My Granddaughter would love those. I hate to see you purchase special screws if you have access to a 3D printer. Maybe some of the generic customizable wall anchors would work? See link below:

cool merci :)

Our absolute pleasure @cycliste737. Which science museum are you at? We hope to grow the library of parts over the coming year.

Thanks for generating these and posting! We love Makedo at the science museum I work at, and it's great to see a company embrace the maker ethos and distribute useful additions to their product that are open source and free. You can bet I'll be using these and the other files you've created, and also purchasing more of your kits. Well done being a stand-up member of the maker community.

So awesome. I love MakeDo and can't wait to extend our building with these great additions. Just printed one, and plan to print a few more.
