Two way screw

This is a "screw" that can thread a clockwise and counterclockwise nut. It's just satisfying to play with.

Original idea from: https://youtu.be/cDfMI5ahbJI

Edit:

Some people have asked for various variations of the screw but I haven’t had time to make most of them. I uploaded a longer screw and shorter nuts which were the easiest requests to fulfill. These are untested so print at your own risk, although they should work since I just extended or shortened the original models

There are lots of remixes that might be what you’re looking for so check them out!

Edit 2: I added a cap to seal off the open end of the bolt in case you want to trap the nuts in there. It’s really a tight fit on my well calibrated printer so keep this in mind as you print it, you may have to adjust it slightly to fit properly without it falling off.

Kobayashi Fidget Cube - Fat Hinge - Flat

This is a simple remix of pkobayashi's fat-hinged fidget cube. The structure hasn't been changed, I just laid the cubes out flat to make printing easier. Printing the original model always resulted in the top layer of cubes getting fused to the bottom layer. This layout eliminates that problem.

The fat hinges are quite robust, so the cube really stands up to a lot of "fidgeting" - it's quite addictive and oddly therapeutic.

UPDATE 02/2017: Got dual extruders or multi-color/multi-material capabilities? Check out my dual extrusion remix.

UPDATE 04/2017: Updated the model (v1.1) to fix one of the hinges that was very slightly mis-aligned

Post-Printing
Hinge clean-up

Some of the hinges printed a little sloppy due to overhangs, but with minor cleanup they function properly.
