This top is made to fit 12 pennies as ballast, providing maximum momentum and allowing this top to spin for minutes on end. With a decent launch, it's quite easy for this top to spin for 3+ minutes. Our top time here was 4:43. Let me know your top time in the comments and I'll update this hall of fame.

MAIN -This is the main part of the top and prints as-is. Pennies should fit snugly in the spaces. I find that the overhang gives just enough extra material to ensure the pennies fit nice. Unfortunately I cannot vouch for currencies from other countries.Please let me know in the comments.
TIP - This needs supports, and prints pointy side up. Depending on your print tolerances, it should fit pretty snug in the MAIN top. A dab of superglue will ensure it stays put.
LAUNCHER - Print this as-is. Some may opt for supports or raft, but I don't need to use either and it comes out fine.
20% infill recommended across the board, and 3+ walls. This top will undergo some strain when being launched and banging around - the stronger the better.
