The good folks at 44RPM have teamed up with the good folks at Inventables and now we have free, open-source flatpack yoyo designs available for the Carvey 3D carving machine!
Designed by Drew Tetz, these free designs allow anyone with a Carvey machine to cut and assemble their own fully playable yoyo, just in time for National YoYo Day. These awesome designs and more will be part of the Maker Lab at the 2016 World YoYo Contest, hosted by Drew Tetz (44RPM) and Kyle Weems (Kyo’s Toys). Limited space will be available for players to work with Drew and Kyle to learn about modern yoyo design, learn about tabletop manufacturing, and even fabricate and assemble their own yoyos at the contest!
For more information, visit Worlds16.com/maker-space. Space for participating in the Maker Lab is limited, and signups will open soon!
