I printed this with Gold silk filament, and used glue sticks as support on the bed.
This eliminated any marks from supports, and looks spectacular. I have to print a bigger globe, the one in the pic is a moon globe and a wee bit small.

Hi Jynda

This looks amazing
Thank you for sharing your work.

Thanks Argasman, you have done a wonderful job with the project.

I learned from this (due to forgetting to add supports) that toothpicks and hot melt glue sticks are an incredible substitute for support.
I was lucky enough to be at the printer when it started to need the support and quickly propped it up with toothpicks first, then went to glue sticks. I didn't pause the print, I juggled as it went around the print..it was funny to see.

Could you tell me what size the orb is? I would like to print it in another color…. Great sculpt, I'm going to make a sorcerer's staff with it with LEDs to light up the orb.

HI Proto.

You right i didn't pay attention to orb size while designing this, so it turned out to be some odd number (like 83mm not sure)
To fix this mistake i remixed it so orb would be exactly 100mm diameter. (check two new files)
hope that now it will be easy enough to scale

My original idea was to make Magius staff that could be controlled by voice ( shirak/dumak)
still in progress....

Best of luck

I really like this. I am working on a remix for another use. I will give you your "props".
