Parte 3 have a big problem on TOP e cant print this

I would love to know what exact printer you have. that has got to be a large one!

Well, Check into a Creality CR10, Massive build area and not too expensive, also much more precise than my Prusa clone. 300 x 300 x 400mm build area ! And I am making things with only support from the build plate and getting excellent detail using colored PETG.

I was wondering what the tiny circle piece is for? (Gandalf-staff_4.2)

I assumed it was to hold the linked LED flashlight in place, but I scaled mine down to 57% to fit my bed and lit it using LEDs and a more complicated lighting scheme (I should post pix). Thar part is threaded, but I couldn't release it from supports without breaking and didn't see how it could be printed without supports.

Anyone else having the top part disappear on Gandalf-staff_3? Using S3d

I did. I even imported the STL into Blender where it showed fine, but exported out without repairing. I ended up putting it through https://service.netfabb.com/ which spit out a perfectly fine working STL.

How are you using the flashlight/torch to illuminate this? Looking quickly at 3D mode, I don't see a hole at the bottom of the lit part. I was thinking of using a short strip of LEDs and an external power switch somewhere.

I would make the crystal part from clear or translucent material and make it mostly hollow (Very low infill and made vertically). This will allow the light below to light it up well.

Yeah, I figured that to be smart... I have a "clear" PETG that actually just makes a transluscent-ish, which would work well.
That said, saddly, this things seems HUGE and likely too big for my printer unless I split it up more... which I might try. I need to see how big I really need it (for a costume for my son).

Amazing work! Totally making it this year.

Thank you for this will be a perfect gift for my daughter's birthday
