A list of changes to the model was made after yesterday's performance. Most of the changes were minor. The grooves for the neoprene grommet or washers which weren't being used were removed and the cavity of the spinner was opened up. The spinner was also shortened a little to increase the clearance from the base.

Spinner with groves gone and shortened

Since the base needed so much work done after it was printed the model itself was altered so it would require less work. A printError variable was added so that some dimensions could be tweaked on account of slop in the printer. If people wanted to copy this file but their printers had higher tolerances the printError variable could be reduced or even set to zero. This affected the base diameter, which wouldn't fit in the jar, and the rivet hole, which needed to be drilled out before the rivet would fit.

To do:
  • Update spinner
    • Shorten spinner
    • Remove unnecessary ribs
  • Update base
    • Add printerError factor
    • Widen post hole according to printerError
    • Widen base
    • Widen screw hole according to printerError
  • Make handheld haptic compass
  • Make compass work from pocket or necklace
  • Miniaturize
