Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #10: Fidget Hand Spinner Fidget Hand Spinner

This hand spinner can be printed in one of two ways; one with space for counterweights embedded in the spokes, or one without. Fabricating without the counterweights means spins won’t last as long, but the need to fidget is still satisfied. The version pictured is printed at 200 microns with 100% infill, with glow-in-the-dark filament, and it looks the business.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #12: The Newton best fidget spinner toys

Here we have a tri-spinner where the three spokes are different lengths, but the center of gravity is such that it rotates perfectly. It certainly deserves the Newton moniker. Of all the creative variations on the fidget spinner phenomenon, this is the smartest.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #14: Hand Spinner Four Gears Hand Spinner

This is a beautiful hand spinner that uses planetary gears. That means a spin from the center will also cause the cogs on the outer spokes to rotate as well. You’ll need a few extra bits and bobs to make it work properly; namely, three pairs of 16mm M6 screws and bolts.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #15: Ball Bearing Fidget Spinner Toy fidget spinner toy

As far as we can make out, this is the very first 3D printed fidget spinner to have surfaced on the magical electronic interwebs. It appeared online at the tail-end of September 2016, and we can’t find any designs shared before that point. Does that mean this is the original source of the craze? It’s a big mmmmmmaybe.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #16: Mini Ninja Star best fidget spinners

Flit through the shadows like a Ninja. And then twiddle away in stealth. Because this item ain’t no shuriken, it’s a fidget spinner. As with the batarang, it’s not advised to throw these at someone’s head.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #17: Fidget Hand Quintuple Spinner fidget spinner toys

This is a clever variation on the hand spinner design which uses only one 608 skateboard bearing at the center. What makes it clever? Because the centrifugal weight for prolonged spins are provided by M14 hex nuts, the rationale being that the outer bearings on the spokes are not strictly necessary. This is also a good opportunity to test out the method of adding metal screw threads to a 3D printed part using a soldering iron.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #18: Hand Spinner best fidget spinner

This hand spinner features a groove on the outer perimeter. So while it make look like a fidget sandwich, it’s actually a tactile design element. It’s also got an inner lip for the bearings on one side, so with a bit of tinkering of the design files it can accommodate alternative weights like coins on the outer spokes.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #19: Pennywise Hand Spinner fidget spinner toys

Again, there are some schools of thought that adding skateboard bearings to the outer spokes is a waste of time and money. The one bearing in the center is perfectly adequate; all that’s needed for the arms of the spinner are counterweights. This design uses a stack of 15 pennies for that exact purpose.  Whether the coins stay snug and secure during a frenzied bout of twiddling is for you to find out…

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #20: Bayblade Fidget Toy fidget spinner toys

Spins not fast enough for your satisfaction? Here’s an iterative design on the classic hand spinner, with notches at the center so it can be spun super fast like a beyblade! You only need to fabricate four or five additional parts. Hands down, this Beyblade Fidget Toy is our favorite model yet.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #21: Glaive Spinner from Krull fidget spinner toys

Diving deep into B-movie obscurity, we have this hand spinner inspired by the fantasy film Krull. The Glaive isn’t encrusted with gold and jewels like the original. Nor does it have sharpened blades to slay hordes of alien invaders. But what it does have is embedded magnets to activate the (blunt) pointy bits when it spins. Also, you don’t have to dip your arm into a lake of lava to retrieve it.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #22: Adafruit Hand Spinner fidget spinner toys

The ever-popular Adafruit has a unique take on the hand spinner craze, devising an elegant model based around their company logo. They’ve also concealed the unsightly ball-bearing underneath an indented hub-cab, so you won’t get greasy fingers. Full instructions for fabrication and assembly can be found on their site.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #23: The Swirl The Swirl

From the same designer who brought us The Triplex, this hand spinner dispenses with the spoke motif for something more organic and… uh… swirly. You can either download the STL file from Thingiverse, or you can head on over to Shapeways and have The Swirl fabricated in a variety of materials, colors, and finishes. You still have to add your own ball bearings, though.

This is a single bearing hand spinner that pays tribute to the Naruto anime series. Although the cap looks like it was made from carbon fiber, in actual fact it’s a vinyl wrap that provides the same effect.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #26: One Piece Print hand spinner

Using a handy dandy 3D printer, you can fabricate a fidget toy with “print-in-place” plastic bearings. It may take a bit of work to loosen them after the print has finished, and your machine needs to be finely calibrated for the tolerances, but makers report that this is a pretty solid effort.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #32: Spiral Moire Wind Spinner best fidget spinner toys

Here’s a clever idea; instead of smacking the side of the hand spinner to make it turn, you can use the power of wind. Simply blow along the spokes (or use a hair dryer), and watch that sucker glide.

Best DIY Fidget Spinner Toys #33: Meat Spinner best fidget spinner toys

Okay, a hand spinner toy in the shape of a T-bone steak is a little bizarre. Not to mention offensive for vegetarians. But inside this model is a cavity where you can stash some coins, providing some centrifugal weight to the spinner. Just don’t try to eat it.
