New Tri-Spinner Design

The good news:

The 3D design I discussed in the last update (click here if you missed it) is now with my machinist …and is soon to be prototyped.

 

The less-good news:

My machinist is ultra-busy right now and so it’s taking a little longer than I had hoped (I will keep you updated though!)

 

Now, here’s something else for you..

Even though I’m focusing on getting this first spinner design produced – I’m still doing a little experimenting with other designs in 3D (I’ve done this previously and so you can click here if you’re new and want to see the previous “Launch List” update).

Here’s a new design I did just to continue learning this 3D CAD software. This spinner design is based on a real titanium prototype I did – so I might actually produce it at some point…

 

I started by building the “framework” for the overall shape:

 

titanium-tri-spinner-1

 

Subtract to create shape:titanium-tri-spinner-2

 

Extrude shape to create 3D part:

titanium-tri-spinner-3

 

Remove the “framework” to leave 3D part:titanium-tri-spinner-4

 

 

Draw 2D lines to cut away material:titanium-tri-spinner-6

 

Subtract material:

titanium-tri-spinner-7

 

 

Subtract material on the other three arms:titanium-tri-spinner-8

 

 

Clean-up drawing:titanium-tri-spinner-9

 

Add a bunch of beveling (this is actually easier that looks):titanium-tri-spinner-10

 

Create profile for button:

titanium-tri-spinner-12

 

 

“Revolve” the button profile to create 3D button part:titanium-tri-spinner-13

 

 

Button made:titanium-tri-spinner-14

 

 

Add button to body of spinner and also render it a little so it looks better (i.e. so it looks like titanium!):titanium-tri-spinner-15 titanium-tri-spinner-16

 

…and that’s pretty much it done!

Now, truthfully, this is similar to a rough prototype I made a week or so ago …and, hand-on-heart, the above spinner design will perform really, REALLY well. And by this I mean comfort in your hand, ways to flick it, repeatability (or flicks), and so on.

It is likely I will produce something like this and offer it for sale soon. However, in the meantime, I am going to continue to focus and develop and offer the original titanium spinner – that’s this one here:

Titanium Spinner

 

One last thing:

Just to re-iterate what I said at the start… the above spinner is now with my machinist who will be cnc-machining it very soon. Once I have this done I will know a price and timeframe for it being available. Thank you for your patience!

 

  • Joshua Lecher says:

    I definitely want a tri spinner when you make one??

  • Pieter Maree says:

    I would also be interested in the TRI spinner

  • Greg says:

    I prefer the “ninja star” version but that one is still awesome.

  • Mowie says:

    So can u estimate the praise maybe around 75 or so?

  • Jamie Norwood says:

    Still watching with interest and praying it is in my meagre disabled tranny budget!

  • John Law says:

    I would like to buy both the bi and tri spinner if price is right.

  • Christopher DKK says:

    It looks bad ass.
    Can’t wait to see the final complete version.

  • Alexis says:

    I like the ninja-star spinner better.

  • Eric Poe says:

    I’m more into tris myself but the original one you’re working so diligently on is starting to grow on me too lol

  • Jack says:

    Oh my gosh!!!! I love how you keep us updated with these informative posts, I first and formoast want the dual spinner but if the price is good, I plan on getting both. Keep us updated!!!!

  • LB says:

    Yes Please, one of each!
    Have you looked at adding tritium as an option?

  • Nicklas says:

    This I like 🙂

  • Hugo Carrière says:

    I want the first and the tri

  • David says:

    When are you going to make it already I want to buy one today!

  • David says:

    No more updates next email please have price and order form available

  • David says:

    Or I will have to opt out of theses “informative” emails

  • Aleksi says:

    Thank you for sharing the process of the design, Magnus. It really helps to understand the thought proces behind that you talk in your videos too.

    I have to say I’m really interested in the tri and ninja spinners. Propably will purchase which ever you will make first. The original spinner does intrigue me with it’s fidgetability too and I might have to get that one too!

    Thanks for the updated and keep up the good work!

  • David says:

    To much brown nosing in here,

  • Kji says:

    It is so good
    Edge processing is also perfect
    I would like to order spinner soon

  • Guy says:

    I’m really liking it! Tri-spinners and bi-spinners are “it” lately on KS and IGG, but nearly all of them use molded plastic or 3D printed bodies with a bearing in the middle and also in the arms, for flywheel effect. Here are the ones I have already received and have pledged for:

    Five Dollar Fidget Spinner
    FlickDeck: Fidget spinner and bottle opener
    Sphidget – A Unique Fidget Spinner Toy (received kit. Massive, heavy, but cool factor out the wazoo! 🙂 )

    Would love to add your Ti-Tri and Bi-Ti Spinners to my collection. Hey – Tri-Ti and Bi-Ti would make great names for them! Feel free to steal! 🙂

  • Nicklas says:

    Maybe put a button at the end of each leg…

  • Bryan Christian N. Dy says:

    Me too. I want one

  • Christopher DKK says:

    Hey Magnus
    Just wondering if by any chance do you plan to make versions of your spinners in Timascus with the torched finish?
    If yes, awesome
    If no, I understand!
    ( 20× the normal cost for material and lots more impossibly high standard work:)
    …………..

  • Lawrence Crowley says:

    Looks awesome… Really Awesome…

    One thing though Magnus… PLEASE NOT ANOTHER KICKSTARTER!!!

    Lawrie

  • Mike says:

    Thank you again for the peep brother… Coming along beautifully!

  • Gregory Castillo says:

    Mark me down for a Ninja Spinner!

  • Alberto says:

    I want both, do you think in a special offer for them?
    Are you going to have any deference with followers?
    Great job!!!

  • Lyndon says:

    Can’t wait to put an order in for the original spinner design. The tri spinner design looks really good but I can’t wait until the ninja star design from the vlogs becomes available, really hoping that design goes into production.

  • JJ says:

    MARK ME DOWN FOR A TRI SPINNER BABY

  • Vincent Prainito says:

    Really like the looks of the tri spinner.

  • Tee says:

    Really want one of each now.. Thanks Magnus for keeping us updated!

  • Tommy says:

    Magnus, thank you for your informative emails. I cannot wait until both spinner ideas are ready. Hopefully you come out with different colors, as you did with your MokuTi Hang key. I’ll be purchasing both.

    Thanks again, and keep up the great work and craftsmanship.

  • Zach Gillespie says:

    I would like a tri spinner as well. The tringle shape one is unique but this design seems a bit more comfortable

  • Blane says:

    Looking good M!!! Thanks for the updates! Looking forward to the initial design… Love your Goods Bud! Keep on Innovating!!!

  • Jdawg says:

    I definitely want both of them. Let’s get the CNC machines pumping these things out! Stop teasing with stories of why you’re thinking of doing. You know most of us have ADHD or we wouldn’t care about spinners in the first place. I’d like to see a dual purpose spinner. One that is a decent spinner but also has some kind of useful tool like a pry bar, screwdriver, or bottle opener or something like that. Make your EDC more useful. That’s a challenge since you need to have the weights pretty close on both ends for it to spin well.

  • Aymeric says:

    I’ll be so interested about trying the tri spinner! 🙂 Good job man, can’t wait to buy one!

  • Bryce says:

    Both ideas look really good I would like to have one when they drop

  • Mika says:

    I really prefer the triangle you shown on Spin Space.

    • Michaël says:

      Well maybe it’s not terrible to EDC in the pocket ^^ But it looked more original.

      Maybe a whole bunch of different spinners?

  • Can’t wait. Looking forward to purchasing them both when available. As always you put so much into each of the projects you undertake. It really shows in the final product. You continue to design and release so many amazing items. Might just start direct depositing my checks into your account!!! Lol Thanks again as always

  • Alex says:

    Can have a trip spinner please

  • Lukas says:

    I really hope you will be able to produce two kinds of material – cheaper steel version for us plebs please 🙂

  • Jesse says:

    Hope the spinners are at a reasonable price.cant wait!!

  • Chucca Cloud says:

    Magnus 3D software is so amazing huh? I’m sure that it’s even more easier and amazing with the things that you can do with it since I touch that software. I like your first idea on the Tri-Spinner with the pointed tips. This Spinner the tips look to blocky. Like maybe if you went from the middle diameter and down at an angle to a smaller block. That might even be easier to catch to with the finger. Who know I’m just a disabled CNC Machinist throwing an idea out there for you.

  • Chucca Cloud says:

    Like to maybe a 9.525mm or 6.35mm of a block would be nice.

  • Jon says:

    I’m excited. Can’t wait!

  • Mehdi says:

    Definitely keen on the tri spinner. Its the best looking spinner i have seen. Cant wait!

  • Eric says:

    Nice design!!!

  • Leon says:

    Would like both, really like the first spinner for a little pocket spinner need asap :)!

  • D Young says:

    Can’t wait !. So exited!.

    Thanks xo

  • Steve says:

    Digging the tri! I do agree with the person above, the arms maybe being tapered down/going to a point would be less blocky. The geometric shape of the one youre currently machining is really appealing and the tri would be even better tapered I think. Regardless, great work!

  • Gabe says:

    I’m really looking forward to the tru-spinner!!!

  • Wail says:

    I liked the three points star more than this

  • Triston says:

    I would love one very much but I am not able to afford one, I would love a spinner!

  • Oliver says:

    I want a Tri model too,awesome looking work!!!

  • Springy says:

    I think the ninja star one would be better.

  • Colby Pearish says:

    Ohhh Very interested in one.

  • Bill says:

    One of each please.

  • Dave says:

    I’d love to try it out, I have not yet to get a spinner and would love to see what these are al about

  • Yohan says:

    I think the button is a little too big

  • Cüneyt says:

    Will be waiting for the TRI?

  • Joey says:

    I would 100% buy a tri-spinner when they are for sale!!

  • Shane says:

    I would get these immediately if these come out. I love your products.

  • Seth says:

    I would love a tri- spinner, I am willing to pay $30- 60. If its ok, place it on hold or contact me.

  • Todd says:

    I will have to agree with the majority and say I will be wanting both designs. Each will have a unique “feel” in the hand which is basically the attraction of them.

  • Johnathan says:

    I want one
