hi there, great job, already printed it, just need to assemble everything. I Also needed to print everything in 75% because the stick was too big for my Anet A8.

Just a question, how did you assemble the wings? You got 2 bolts on the wings but there are no mountingholes on the half-ball or the stick? Did you just drill the holes or what?

Thanks, Tommy.

Thanks Tommy,

The wings were assembled drilling the holes on the ball (the first idea was to glue it ...).

I will update it ASAP.

Thanks again for your comments!

Great job on this design. What did you use to paint it? My paints are so translucent that I have to do a bunch of coats and it doesn't look very good.

Thanks!. First of all, I used primer in some parts (stick, back ball) to reduce/eliminate the plastic layers ... after 2 primer layers I used sintetic spray as a final paint. I prefer this kind of paints because I like the gloss finish. Ah! For the star you will need to mask it for the two different blues colors...
Good luck!!

Wow! Looks great and the one in the pictures looks awesome with all the colors! I love that you made it so LED's could be put inside. This has a great chance to be in the top 3.

Thank you very much for your comments!!! I appreciate it so much! It will be a dream to win something ... ;)

Hello, I am getting ready to print this model, and I noticed that there is not a file for the heart on the bottom of the handle. Is there a file for it?

Here you have!
you need to print it with transparent material if you planned to add LED light to the wand charger.

Thank you so much!

Sorry to keep bothering you, but which program to you use to make your 3D files? I would like to enlarge the top of the wand a bit to make the proportions a little more accurate.

Now you can download the Inventor files (I hope it will help you).

How would I add the lights? And which kind would you suggest?

I used 2 CS2025 in serial (3V+3V=6V) batteries and 5 SMD leds (from some LED lights broken ... ), but you can by estándar LED's, are very cheap. If you need something else ...

Ok thank you so much!
