These are great tops, I recreated something similar in OpenSCAD and enabled it in Customizer for anyone looking to tweak or customize them to improve performance or appearance.

Thanks for this design!

Everspin Spinning Tops

Printed about 15% for me and then came off the bottom plate. Probably a printer issue, not a model one but just saying anyhow

Try using a glue stick on your print bed to get better adhesion.

Thats a great idea.....have you tried it?

I have. Works pretty well, but putting down masking tape on the bed (or blue painters tape) and then using the glue stick works the best for me. Sometimes they adhere so tightly to the bed it's a struggle to remove them.

This was literally my first print. Works really well printing a couple more

these things work great I love them

what do the multiple tips change?

Would anyone be able to make a version of the third one without the tips, and a separate file to print them? I'm having trouble printing them together because they won't stick to the bed.

downlaod something called meshmixer, then open the file then you can split them,, if you want i will re upload this in seperate files.

Thanks, I should be able to do it, no need to upload them again :)

Our cat loves this!

Great design.. was wondering if you are interested in working together to make and sell your product in Asia through www.tridii.com

i love the model, but when i try printing it, the printer print fine the base but when it has to print the tips and the spin at the 50% of the model, the extruder stops flowing the ABS but the motors are still running, i tried printing again 3 times and i'm having the same problem at the same part of the model, any help?

Is it just with this print or every print? I had this problem with every print. I'm pretty sure the problem was with the fan, but I got it working by exchanging my printer (fed up with loads of incomplete solutions).

Hello MakerBot community,
I'm a software developer in the IoT space. I just got a MakerBot 2x, trying printing for the first time.
I'm wondering why every print has the 2 borders on its top-left / bottom-right corners.
I see options for support and raft but didn't see this. If someone can explain that would be great!

If you have not figured it out yet, this is for the dual extruders. This basically cleans out the tip and gets the ABS flowing between each color change and each layer.

I can't speak for Makerbot, but in the slicer program I use for my RepRap printer it generates what's called a "skirt", or a border around the total print area of the current print. It's used to gauge the area of the print and let you know if the print will fit on the print bed, and also to prime the nozzle in case the filament isn't fed all the way up to the tip of the nozzle. If your border is anything like I imagine I'm guessing it's for a similar purpose.

i did not see that but i am now aware of such a thing, thank you

Models have different spinning sides.

Why three models? What is the difference between them?

Yukano is mistaken, the tips aren't different. Look at the differences between the blue and red tops in the first photo. The three models have different outer counterweights. One as single supports and pointed counterweights, one has single supports and rounded counterweights, and one has double supports and sort of squared counterweights.

the tips are diffrent

We Made one in the company...And we all love it !
Nice design...!

Great design! All of them spin really well and the grandkids love them. Thanks!

awesome! did the second one, and it worked out quite well. the tips didn't turn out quite right, but i carved at it a bit with a pocket knife and it worked out

Nice tops. Maybe a knurled spin end to get more torque on it for faster spin. Just an idea

I just printed my first and it works quite well. I had a 25% (I think) fill on that print, but after thinking about it, I'm sure this should have 100% fill to maximize the weight.

I'm also considering printing in ColorFab BronzeFill which is very heavy (due to the 80% bronze powder). Has anyone tried that yet?

The spinning part printed fine.. But the "tips" came out ugly (And one didn't stick to the bed).

But when I was looking at how to fix the only surviving tip, I came up with a better idea.. I took a 6mm bolt and ground the shaft to a point in the workshop.. Then I ground back the threads a little to thin out the holt. Finally I cut the head off, and "wound" the new tip (with shallow thread) into the hole in the top.

Finally I heated the metal tip to 'glue' itself into the body.

Its now got a nice sharp metal tip and I really like it.

Going to make the others now!

My Extruders didn't get hot enough to print the spinning top on my XYZ printer.??????

do they heat up at all? i just recently had a heating issue with my 1.0

.... What? this should print at the same temperature as Any other print...
temperature is based on your Material, not the model.

I Love the way the 3 models have different weights- and spin tymes! and I have attention of 2 girl cats with no growlin'between them!
Due to my new job, I have 'slippery' fingertips, the only mod I would suggest is a "matched" = smaller - diameter for spinning- especially for kid size fingers. this is an excellent science project for the youngin's of all!

I love this spinning top. I made all three and they are AWESOME! Thanks for sharing them!

Dorif, can you share some photos while spinning it? THX

I'm setting up to run this PM while @ 'other job'! :D

Very Clean design! lets see how they spin!

So did you try that? :-)
