I had to print this at 102.5 percent . Could of maybe went down to 102 , but 100 percent was WAY too tight for bearings. My printer has been calibrated .

looks and works great pretty solid spinner.

thanks Nath5, i've printed dozens of them on my monoprice mini
they work great!

I printed this but bearings are never fitted. So I adjusted body scale to 1.01, and cap scale to 0.99 .

I had to scale mine to 103% to get the 608 bearings to squeeze in.
I'm using a Taz5 and printing through Cura. To scale up or down: load the model, click on the model and click on the Scale icon that pops up at the bottom. Change your scale for any axis from 1.0 to 1.03 (it'll stay in proportion and all scale together).

The quality of the print looks great! What kind of PLA did you use?

Bearings holes are too tight. I had to sand the inside bearing. Mine warped but thats not the issue My issue is can you make a version that could fit 608zz bearings and for makerbot replicator 2. I don't know how to scale to 101 percent

click the object, and then it will give you some options. Hover over every button when it is selected, and if one says scale, click it.

the middle part was a little bit to small for me

Try scaling the model to 101%, I used a hammer to gently tap the bearings in.

It doesn't matter

I printed mine in pla.

Is it good to use 608 steel ball bearings?

yes on the bering he has it says size 608

What measurement exactly are the bearing holes?

The holes are 22mm

Comments deleted.

Could you upload a model with bigger holes for the bearings? Just a little bit

When you go to slice the model trying scaling it up by 1 or 2 percent and it should fit your bearings. Let me know if that doesn't work.

hi i was wondering what kind of measuring units did you use??

Everything is modeled using millimeters.
