Hi. The counterweight shows the wind speed? but do you have a table o something thats tells you strong / fast the wind is?

hi, look the first infographic, there are two a graduated shaft, kmh and mph.
enjoy it and share a pic :)

I saw that, but those marks are not in the model, so is there any detailed instructions about how to set precisely the marks on the vento?

Sorry I am not sure if I understood, the ventograph has the marks already engraved in the shaft here I put the links

Sorry man! that happens when I dont read and take a look at the file. Sorry. Will print it right away! very nce work!

no problem ;)
if you print windograph please post it on "i made one"


How the cups connected to the top bearing? On the end there is no little pin completly flat. Shoud I glue it together?
I cannot find picture about the V5 parts together, with 3 cups.

Thank You

sorry for the late answer, yes, you should paste it with glue.

This is great! Thanks a bunch for making this!

did u printed? :D

I can´t wait for the final version!!!!

Currently there are no supports but they will be in the final version.
After you download the file you have to position it in the best way to generate and print supports with cura or sclic3r
This is what I have done in the prints that you can see :)

Sorry, I meant, is it hung by a string, or attached to a base, or how is it held down? Do you have a picture of it in use? Also, isn't there a lot of friction between the rotating part and the stationary part? How well does it work? How do you calibrate it?

Hi, here are all the uploads I've done, as you will see I added a desk-base and a bike-mount. The ventograph is an empiric instrument (for example you can use it on you bike or on your window) I calibrated it in an empiric way.
