Hi there everyone
So at my school there is a thing we have to do called a personal project. It’s something that’s supposed to be a bigger project and last the majority of the school year. For mine I’m going to make a yoyo ;D I’ve been messing around in a cad program a downloaded for a while, and I recently came up with a design I really like. I sent it to some folks to get some feedback and then made some more edits. I finally got it to a point where I like it and figured i’d post it here This is the final drawing before I sent it to my machinist. I was kidding about the last one, haha…sorry if that disappoints anyone. It’s the same design, but I removed the bump from the catch zone to the rim, in an effort again to reduce the weight. I like how it looks. It’s a lot better than the last one IMO, so we’ll see how everything goes. It’s kinda a yyr-ish shape. Wider than most, but not too wide. I want it to be a light-ish weight. 64-66 grams hopefully. I’m gonna get it machined in different aluminum grades too, hopefully. Just to see the difference, haha. This is it. Hope you all enjoy. I’ll probably sell a proto or two on BST, so be on the watch! Thanks any design feedback is appreciated!
~ about 44mm width
~ Don’t know the weight, still need to calculate.
~ Size C bearing of course! Most likely a 10 ball
~ Flow groove response
~ tapped axle
~ most likely a soda blast finish
~ Maybe a 4.3-4.4 gap
that’s all for now like I said before all feedback is appreciated. On a side note I kind of want to involve some of the community in this, so if you’re a string maker or something contact me and we can work something out for some special strings to go with the first run! That’d be awesome. Thanks for looking!
If I posted this in the wrong place feel free to move it. or something… haha. it’s also in the modding and maintenance section, in case anyone was wondering
