Description

This is a cool desktop gadget that will help you de-stress, clear your mind, and is just fun to watch!

 

You will need the yellow USB motor that comes with any of the Bambu Labs hardware kits (003, 005, 007).

There are two gear ratios provided for slower or faster rotation as desired.

 

Unfortunately the motor isn't silent so its not something you would leave running all the time. On my list for version 2 is to find a similar size motor with a silent gearbox.

 

Printing Turntable:

For best results, print the turntable parts and the topper(s) from the print profiles.

 

required Parts:

  • turntable base
  • turntable top
  • wheel clip x3
  • wheel x3
  • motor clip

If you use the .stls included, you will have to split the main turntable parts into objects.

 

Printing Toppers:

Print whichever topper you wish (or both). You can also mirror the parts if you wish.

I have changed some default support settings in the print profiles to make the supports more reliably easy to remove - these work well for me, hopefully they do for you aswell.

 

There are two .3mf files for each of the included toppers. The slow file has all walls and overhangs at the same speed so you will not see any lines from the speed changes, but this slows things down quite a bit. I don't recommend upping the overhang speed much as the (buildplate-only) supports are not able to reach all areas.

 

The normal speed file will have lines where the speed changes.

 

Assembly:

  • Insert each of the 3 wheels onto the pins with the large diameter portion of the wheel closest to the middle of the pin.
  • Insert each wheel/pin into the turntable body
  • Insert the motor into the body, it should snap into place
    • Note that it can be installed either way, but there is only a hole for the cable on one side of the body
    • Flipping the motor to the other side of the body will not change the direction of rotation (you'd have to reverse the polarity of the wires)
  • Install the motor retention clip and desired gear
    • small gear with position closer to center will spin slower
    • larger gear with position further from center will spin faster
  • place top on and the put round ring in the centering groove on the turntable.
