About this new version:
This version is much smaller and thinner than the original; 6cm instead of 9.5cm.
Also one line of the staff has been added above/below ledger lines to help recognizing notes better.
This fidget spinner helps learning note names of the notes below, above or on the four ledger lines, above or below the staff you use.
The idea is, to keep it in your pocket, an use it when there is nothing else to do.
Each side of the spinner has only four notes to practice. Practicing a small group of notes at one time makes it easier to memorize.
Each time the spinning stops, you can look at the upper picture on the spinner, to practice the ledger notes above the staff. Or, if you look at the bottom picture on the spinner, you can practice the ledger notes below the staff.
Materials and methods
Filament: white PLA
Recommended layer height: 0.2mm
Printing surface: glass
Object consists of 2 parts: spinner body with notes, and a central part.
In your slicer you should cut the bodies into upper and lower half.
After printing, glue the spinner body halves first (with a superglue), then insert a half of the central part and glue the other half onto it.
(Note: spinner also works well without the central part so you can omit it.)
To make the lines and notes visible, you can:
a.) print the top and bottom parts with two filaments of different colors by stopping the print at an appropriate height and swapping the filaments,
b.) simply color them with a sharpie.
The example on the picture has been printed in PLA, with 0.2mm layer height and a filament change to make notes an lines visible.
