3D model description

I wanted to try something different:
- my first take on a print in place, articulated, mechanical thing
- a spinning top that doesn't require supports, multiple parts, etc.

I think, this one fulfills both :)

3D printing settings

0.2mm, 2-3 perimeters, infill doesn't matter
print time ~1hr
not supports or rafts needed.

Thank you for the tips, will try that! Ill let you know if it works 😁👌🏻

Thanks! I printed it also multiple times, without an issue. There are several things that may cause this:
- bed adhesion not optimal
- try z-hop. you may get more stringing, but the chance hitting the objects with the nozzle is minimized
- overextrusion - can cause ridges which can catch the nozzle
- try using a raft or a brim

Cool model! Unfortunately, it failed twice due to the center pillar falling over.

I printed it at the settings you suggested. Any tips?
