The STL File:
Prints on all standard 3d printers without supports, requires the following additional parts to assemble:
- 2 M4x12 Screws (I used some from this set)
- 4 M4 Washers (These are the ones)
- 2 624Z 13mm OD/4mm ID Bearings (These work great)

Total Filament Used: ~145g
**All the files have been pre-oriented to save you some set up time! All you need to do is drop the parts into your slicer and hit print!
Let me do the printing for you! You will receive all the parts required to assemble this kinetic sculpture yourself.
