Spinning Top with Articulated Arms

I was inspired by the recently featured articulated butterfly to design a spinning top that has articulated arms. The butterfly can be found here:

I wanted the spinning top to be easy to print, so it prints in two pieces (the main body/arms and the handle). The main body is printed upside down to minimize support.

I also made an interesting comparison of how much it would cost to 3D print vs CNC machine the top, as a kind of “what if” we didn’t have 3d printing. This comparison really highlights how amazing 3D printing is for the home designer. The video can be seen here if you are interested:
