Description

The title is pretty descriptive :)

Printing the vertex of the top flat makes it easy to get a nice finish!

No support required :)

Thanks to Obijuan and MathForum (http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/55203.html) now the peg-top is very easy to parameterize.
You can specify the maximum "air-printing" angle of your printer and it will generate the optimal peg-top :)

I have just sent you a fully parameterized peg-top ;-)

Instructions

Download, print, spin.

Important note: Keep the perimeter speed low in order to get a nice finish for the overhangs.

Print settings for Cura: 0.5mm nozzle, Wall Thickness: 1.5mm, Layer Height: 0.4mm, 50% infill, 12mm/s (perimeters), 60mm/s (infill). These speed settings are achieved by choosing a Print Speed of 60mm/s and setting to 20% the inner/outer wall speed on the printing interface.

Thank you Obijuan for fixing it!! :-)
