3D model description

Build 1 of my "Fidget" series

Half proof of being able to develop a proper screw and nut combo, half making something to play with when I'm bored.

I created this fidget. The "Bolt" is in two pieces so the nut can be screwed on before closing. I also added a small slot for a string or small keyring.

The purpose of this design is to work as a portable play thing to help relieve stress or make the time go by.

Print one and see how addicting it can be. I would love to see more "I made it" posts!

The nut in the middle is slightly bigger than the outer sides. this gives it a great feel and an easier grip for one handed use.

There is just enough of a gap for smooth glide between the nut and bolt. It would still work with a small gap but the idea is to have a calming effect and a tighter fit reduces the smooth feeling and would require much more hand muscle and control over fine motor skills.

Enjoy! Let me know what you all think in the comments!

Update

I added a single file print plate for easier downloading and printing! Enjoy.

3D printing settings

Print in MakerWare a the default "standard' setting with 20% infill.

No raft or supports needed. Some stringing may occur with less infill in the nut which will require some clean up before putting the pieces together.
