could this bearing be scaled to ABEC 5 size: 8mm inner, 22mm outer, 7mm width(I looked up these dimensions and I am not sure if they are correct)?

after a quick cleanup, the bearing spins pretty good

If the ball bearing does spin can it be used in a fidget Spinner

Does the ball bearing spin

It seemed to have printed fine, but all the parts are stuck.

That depends on your printers nozzle size. If you can't pry them loose, try to scale it up.

Hi, i used your bearing a little bit modifield in my project: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:924119

Use it add much as you want! Cool design!

Thanks! I actually thought the 1/10 scale was a "feature" of Makerware. I've accidentally exported in mm instead of cm, which the programs require. I'll just upload the scaled up version.

Nice design! While printing, I noticed the stl is scaled in cm not mm which results in a quite small object. Also the object is rotated the wrong way up.
