Ever since I saw the hand spinner fidget toys popping up everywhere I wanted a Batman version. Fellow You Tuber Ray Pena machined some https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2TsJ... that were awesome. I liked the idea of trying to make my own. So after a little research and much appreciated advise from Peter Brown https://www.youtube.com/user/kludge1977 I gave it go. In this video I make a Batman logo hand spinner using a cookie cutter as a mold. The body is made from a casting resin that is very easy to work with it. It mixes easily and sets up fast. I made a prototype that went fairly well. The process is fairly simple however I did run in to some issues. Since I used this as a chance to experiment with the casting resin and try a few things varying results were to be expected. One thing I noticed was that it seemed like with each session the castings were harder and harder to remove from the molds. I'm sure if I used a silicone mold or a release agent that I wouldn't have run in to this problem. I plan on doing some more research and give it another try. Perhaps look in to making my own silicone mold. Overall I am happy with the end results they aren't as nice as a manufactured or 3D printed one but I still like the way they came out. Also the casting resin was a lot of fun to work with it and gives me plenty of inspiration. Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed the video.
