Inspired by a popular wooden toy, we created a lab maker remix of an ancestral artifact for 3D printing.

A modern version of a hand spin top to bring this science-filled toy to children today.

This project is part of a collection to translate popular toys into the reality of digital manufacturing.


What You'll Need
