this is a spinning top that I designed with tinkercad, this top can spin for up to two minutes. I designed it to print with a pin to go in and act as a handle to spin it with, but it is nearly impossible to print because it is so tall and skinny, but I discovered that a hard wood nail works even better than the pin.


print the top body with no support and solid infill, so give it extra weight. The pin should be printed at the lowest possible temperature, slowest speed, and have a fan if possible, even then it may not print well, so just gluing a nail or something along those lines will work.

I have no trouble printing the pins. (Prusa MK2) but they are too brittle to withstand getting dropped by the kids off the table. So we just use the tops without handles and have "battles" to see who can spin the longest. Thanks for a GREAT design!!

how do u get it to spin on your finger

If you print 2 pins with 2 inches between them the pins will print perfectly

I love you so much. Can I be u
