3D model description

Product Design, created for my Get Lucky studio, one of my final year project in Poly.

3D Printing ABS white, Jelutong Wood, Small Metal Ball
Date: 23/02/2016

This project is from one of the Final Year Project (FYP), from the Get Lucky Studio. We explored the intangible meanings, notions and experiences of luck. Read More here (

Spinning Luck was inspired from the feel of anticipation when one can get when they go through the game of chance. In most game of chance, such as spinning the Wheel of Fortune, turning the Bingo cage or spinning the roulette will give the players the feel of anticipation with the help of sound that makes them anticipate the result till the end. Read more here in page 28 (

Spinning Luck is a top that enhance the feeling of anticipation relates to luck in game of chance as it spins. It stages the experience of anticipation from start till the end. Spinning luck is designed as a spinning vessel.

When it spins without the sound, player will throw a small metal ball into the top and the ball will create a high pitch sound till it slows down. There will be coloured markings in the top to indicate the emotion of the day, so when the top stops, the metal ball will fall in one of the colour parts.

The top is build from the 3D printer sing ABS White plastic.
So spin the Spinning Luck and anticipate the result of your emotion of the day.
