Almost Finished My First Design, the CADence!


#1

Hey, I’ve for the most part finished my design. I don’t know how I would go about making the axle hole, though. Any feedback or advice? I included the .ems file, so if anyone wants to check out the design, they can. But if you download the .ems file, I have a request. I did the bearing seat and response groove for the most part by just my vision, so if you’ve designed yoyos and have the correct lines for a C-size bearing seat and a response groove for 19mm pads, could you either revise it or email me a .ems file of those? Also, what do you think of the design? I also have a 64g version in CAD.

The specs of this design, according to the program:
Diameter- 56.420 mm
Width- 21.580 mm per half
Weight- ~32 grams per half

That is amazing.


#3

That looks really nice, keep at it!


#4

Go to tools then statistics and it will tell you the weight.Overall looks really good but I hope you know it’s going to be around 50mm wide :wink:


#5

Maybe I’m not looking at the same thing as you guys… but I think you might have designed a spin top by accident.


#6

It’s only one half of the yoyo. He didn’t show both halves because they are symmetrical. When you add an axle and bearing, then screw the halves together, it becomes a yoyo.


#7

The center of gravity won’t be in the center until yo attach the other half,


#8

That makes sense, haha. But how would I go about putting on a bearing seat/response groove/axle hole? Do I just get the specs and and then cut into the design?


#9

The half actually only weighed 23 grams… I’ve done some revisions for the weight.


#10

Thats way too light. You will need it at least 60(Total) to get any buyers.


#11

Listen to this man! He is the king of EMS!


#12

As I stated, I have made revisions and I will post the new version later. The half now weighs 30 grams, and I want to get to 32-33.


#13

I would be down to buy another ultralight throw. The Pacquiao was awesome.


#14

Anyone know how to make a bearing seat/axle hole/response groove? That’s the only thing I need left now. And to Big cat, I’m shooting for a 64-66 gram throw.

How did you do that to the last picture?


#16

Go to 3D view and then click the gray shapes with a red border at the top (next to the wire pyramid icon)

Updated

Just so you know it’s going to be like 71 grams almost after bearing and axle right?


#19

Oh, yeah, I knew that but didn’t really think about it. I better modify the design a bit :wink:


#20

how much do bearing and axle weigh ?
