Yes, there are already brilliant solutions to print the spinning top in several parts without support. But that's no reason not to look for further solutions. These are two very good ideas in my opinion:


I already have a solution for two parts that uses a steal ball as a pivot point.
With this spinning top, the majority of the mass is also outside, without the need for special adjustments, since the disc has several walls inside.


I will also try your gyro. It's a good idea not to print the axis, but to use an object that most people have at home. Not everything always has to come from the 3D printer.

So, happy printing and playing

Spinning Top, easy to print, works great

i just published my spinning top and I see your idea, nice! a brilliant way to print a spinning top without support too.
If you split different object is possible to print the external ring 100%, I believe heavier is better.
