3D model description

Here I expose my new wind spinner. Its spiral arms have a fillet that catches the wind and makes the piece spin. The arrangement of the blades creates beautiful and interesting patterns when spinning.In this video you can watch some turners in action:
You can scale and paint the piece as you like and get very nice moving objects for your house or garden. It is best to hang the wind chimes on a nylon thread, perhaps a piece of fishing line. This is very stable.
You can scale the spinner according to the capabilities of your printer. Try long and narrow or wide and thick. It always looks good.
I have created 3 STL files. One with the pure object, and for the FDM- as well as the resin- printing process each a presupported version, which work very well on my printers.

3D printing settings

I print all my pieces with 50µ, which requires little rework and little sanding. PLA or standard resins are suitable for printing. The spinner is about 18cm tall, but you can scale it to your liking.
20% fill for FDM. Please ensure good bed adhesion. On the finished model, just remove the support rods and sand away the residue.
In the resin version, I made the base part hollow and provided with a hole, so that the resin and the air can drain well.
I have 2 printers in operation:
for FDM: Ultimaker 3 Extended
for resin: Phrozen Transform Fast.
Both excellent devices.
