(UPDATE-I'm in the process of upgrading these staffs to improve strength and look, so designs might change.)
This is a Nightwing staff design I created, Inspired by wizzardofboz"s Nightwing escrima sticks. I found their design to be very cool, but not as strong as I would have hoped nor did I want to print the large stick to finish the design. So I began my process of the redesign that brought me to these current models. I got rid of the stick aspect of their design and replaced it with a PVC tube. (approx 20in long with a 3/4in diameter) I then thoroughly wrapped this stick in electrical tape(black and blue) with alternating bands of color to replicate Nightwing's staffs.
The actual 3D models are the three pieces I printed to create the electric topper of the staff. There is a black top with a Nightwing logo, an inner blue insert, and a black body. I combined these pieces with the PVC tube to get my results (attached by an interference fit-i.e. add more tape to make it tighter) This all comes together to look like Nightwing's iconic staffs.
P.S. 20,000-volt battery not included to shock criminals. :)
Thank you for your time.
20-30% worked good, not super important
Everything is designed to be printed with no rafts or supports, that is why I created 3 pieces.
Attach PVC Tube and Staff Topper
After you layer the PVC tube with electrical tape, you will want to attach the topper. Try to an amount of tape which creates a nice snug fit, and then attach the other pieces. You can use glue if you want but not necessary, all parts should be interference fit but you can size as you please.
