How accurately can you build your spinning top?

With our super-precise scanner, you can detect the difference between two seemingly identical components. Our ZEISS O-Select makes visible what cannot be seen with the naked eye. The more precisely you cut out your spinning top, the better and longer it will spin. How does it work and where else is it used? Try it out for yourself!
