Tops

Post by jsc » Mon Jun 13, 2016 8:32 pm

Rsilvers has gotten me into tops now. Here's a printable version: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1614283

Relies on a 1/8" bearing ball as the contact point. On a smooth surface (I'm using my M2 glass bed) I can get a 2:45 spin, which is not stellar for a performance top but pretty amazing for something made out of PLA.

Printed with 20 shells to get a solid concentric infill, split in half through the body and glued back together.

That is cool. That reminds me of a top I saw on youtube but it was made with wood. They are called tippe tops. I just did a quick search on thingiverse and found this one. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:370749
It looks like fun.
