  • Alumide

    Grey nylon plastic with a subtle metallic sparkle.


This is a set of movable nested rings a la Armillary spheres or perhaps the film Contact. One touch and they start spinning, showing gyroscopic forces. Also functions as a trivial demo of gimbal mechanisms.

The tolerances of the moving parts vary based on printing method and variables during the printing. To improve the motion, cut out a tiny circle of thick paper and put it in the axle well.
