To cut a long story short, I posted a 3D model of a yoyo on some facebook contest in order to win a 3D printer. And what do you know, I won the contest, and now I’m expecting a brand new 3D printer in the mail. Off course I am expected to actually print my model with it, and send some pics to the people who organised the contest, so they can post them on their blog, etc…
First of all let me be absolutely clear that I do not expect a 3D printed yoyo to play very well. In fact I expect it to be bad. But I won the darn thing so sending them some pics of the 3D printed winning entry is the least I can do. And while I’m at it, I should try to make the best out of it I possibly can.
I know a bit about yoyo designing, I co-designed the oxy5 if that is any reference… Just so people know I’m not a total noob…
So basically, I am looking for someone who can machine me the yoyo guts. The body will be printed, the guts will have to be machined out of aluminum for it to have any chance to play halfway decent.
I am looking for a response groove, bearing seat and threaded axle fixture, that I can glue into the printed halves. (similar to a Milk system for instance, but with axle fixture integrated)
I can help with CAD drawings etc if necessary, please send me a PM if you’re interested in helping me out with this little project.
I have some cash, I have some yoyo’s,… I’m sure we’ll work something out.
