Yoyo CAD & Prototyping Adventures

How do I find that out? lol

Edit: Never mind, I got it. It is .03mm. I’ll tweak it a little.

Edit 2: I changed it to .75mm. 1mm seemed to change the edge too much.

This, is, awesome.

Now if I can save up enough for some protos, I’ll be set!

Thanks for all the help, Mark!

You have very similar preferences to me smiley, I love the looks here.

Noice! I wish I could do CAD but my workstation’s Nvidia Driver isn’t compatible with the new Mac update, so Fusion 360 is glitching everywhere.

Take 2 of the mirror-polished cup idea, this time with a convex hub:

width 44 mm
diameter 59 mm
mass 64 g
axle 10 mm
material 7068

So do you just “print screen” like to screenshot ? Cuz I’d like to flex my design but I can’t get pics

Is this gonna be the next one fam?

Just a simple screenshot

For some reason it never works when I attempt screenshot in Fusion :man_facepalming:t2:


dat looks like a helvetica or impulse2

Try the Render mode and make it really beautiful!

Well that thing is I know how to do that but just posting it here is the tricky part but I believe I got it now

A mirror in the center? I dig it.

(Mk1 Yoyos) #239

Working on the mirror-cup thing some more, this time with two separate convex arcs creating the hub, and an h-shaped profile:

I think the specs are about where I’d want them, too.

spec value
width 44mm
diameter 59mm
mass ~65g
axle 10mm


So many cool naming possibilites with the mirror cup – and this is also a WAYY cooler design than so-called “polished bimetal style rims” (cough YYF).



i gotta say, that shape looks comfy

Spyglass would be a great name! Other words I was considering were Reflection, Shine, Specular, and Phong.

You could call it a lunascope
