Now THIS is what I am talking about! I am going to print this out of castable wax and make the different parts out of different metals. Maybe the top out of copper and the bottom out of some sort of non-precious? Or silver and gold? I dunno but I'll post the pics when I am finished.

Made one with 100% infill and it only spins a few seconds. Too much infill maybe ? Thanks !

I have never printed a spinning top before but I have waxed and cast them into metal. I have noticed that the heavier that my metal is the longer it will spin (given that the top is balanced). Maybe you could try a heavier plastic?
This top MAY have a balance issue as well and I am going to cast it into metal and check it out.
