4 perimeters with low infill 10%.
At 205 for a 5" top it's great. Good squish, but not excessive. Feels cool.
I have had the Prusa I3 MK3 for a while. I recently upgraded it to the MK3s.

This is the top Mailman received as his raffle prize. The body has 5% fill, the weight ring 90% fill and the tip section 30% fill.



The tip is a Spintastics diabolo.

Cyril chose the green more flexible material and will be delivered in person  :)

Truly a  thing of beauty! Bet it feels good in the hand, too.

We've been discussing indoor practice in another thread. This baby could still take out a lamp or an eye, but the flex definitely advances the margin of safety for nearby people, pets, things, and the top itself.

Q: Where do I sign up for an autographed copy?

Please give my regards to Cyril.

Thanks! But the credit for the internal rib design goes all to the slicing software .

I have been working away on a new design which I am excited about. Gumdrop Tops !
 It is a 4"flexible top that comes in at150 grams. Stainless steel tip like the other tops I make. Theses are indestructible, look beautiful and play great.
I don't have many made since they take a long time and TPU is tough to print. If people are interested I will make more in the future ,but for now I have 6 available . PM me if your interested.

I am selling these for $120 shipped in the US. Add a bit more for international. I will be going to LA next week near Disneyland for a church youth group thing.

Very nice thanks for sharing. I sure did a lot of praying before my second hip surgery.

Wow I just looked at this video. Your tops are beyond tough. I was out today with the blue top you sent me. Your strings so far don’t work for me yet. Then I tried five of mine and had the same trouble. I threw and got a catch - the top rolled on the cement for ten feet. To my surprise not one scratch now I know why. I tried my last long string and my Grandson showed up. He did the double body cork screw with your top. I can’t Waite to see that trick at night. Thanks again for making a Beautiful top.
