These are NOT by me. 
I have made these files available because I'm a big fan of this character and wish to share the files with others... with them, you can 3D print a nearly fully articulated Johnny 5 robot of your own.
(The printing scale can also be changed with little issue.) For those interested in the original files (and possibly updated versions of) they are located in the Facebook group at:


Use the pictures for parts placement references, and an approximation on what colors to print in; and/or what color to paint things after building it.

The primary parts can be glued (epoxy recommended) but there are also screw mount points for some parts.
Just remember to use larger or smaller screws, depending on how you scale the prints. 
Other parts may require short pins or pieces of wire for assembly. (feet / track segments)

Lastly, be sure to sand, adjust, and test fit all parts before final assembly!

Solis Fidget Spinner

(Click to open large version in new tab.) 

A simple design (by me) with a good size and plenty of contours for the fingers to touch and fidget.
Plus it has a nice amount of weight for good spin times with plenty of metal beads or marbles along the outer edge.

(You obviously must supply your own bearing and metal beads or marbles.)


In order for this design to work best, print it split into two parts as shown in the picture above showing the two halves next to each other.
Insert your metal beads or marbles in-between these two parts, then glue the flat sides of each part together to hold the beads or marbles in place securely.
(epoxy is suggested)

After the glue has set, install your center bearing and you're ready to spin!
Optional: Paint it any colors you wish before assembling it... just don't paint the glue surfaces.

Be sure to test fit assembly to align the holes correctly before using glue. Also, check the measurements of the STL file to be sure the holes are the correct size and edit as necessary to hold your beads or marbles correctly in place.
Lastly, the file is scalable, so again, check to be sure ALL measurements are as you desire before printing it... including the hole to hold the bearing.
