I ran out of fidget toys i really enjoy. An obviously highly critical situation!

That's why i started to design my own ones, which resulted in a series of five similar but still quite different fidget toys using helical gears.

The series:

(Thingiverse has f'd up the formatting, so that's the best i could do, sorry)

Gear Fidget Toy 02 - The thin square

Gear Fidget Toy 03 - The hexagon

Gear Fidget Toy 04 - The little square with a spin

Gear Fidget Toy 05 - The flat hexagon with a spin (my favourite)

Notes:

As i designed it with quite small tolerances to not have the gears too tight ore loose, i don't recommend to resize them.

Be careful with the amount of glue when assembling the top and bottom parts.
