Simple gear key chain fidget. The two gears are actually identical except for the placement of the spokes, the only reason there are two is so the spokes can be lined up with each other and with the rest of the key chain a the same time.

When assembling it, first put each pin into it’s corresponding hole individually and make sure they fit, then put the gears on and press the whole thing together. I found the fit to be tight enough without glue (it requires prying with a blade or screwdriver to take apart), but I don’t see a reason why one couldn’t use glue should it be needed.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
