Summary

UPDATE: You can now print the wand with no LED or switch, look for "NO_LED" in the download files.

This is Hermione Granger's wand specifically modeled for 3D printing. The wand has a built in battery, LED, and switch (use 22 AWG wire).

LED: 5mm OD http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UWBJM0Q?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01

Switch: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008LT3O14?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00

Battery (x2): http://www.amazon.com/Energizer-Batteries-SR44SW-SR44W-LR44/dp/B000RB05LG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1445638303&sr=8-1&keywords=357+303+battery

Notes:

If you have a large print bed, use the two files:

"hermione grangers wand - TOP"
"hermione grangers wand - BOTTOM"

If you have a small print bed, please use these four files:

"wand top 1 of 2"
"wand top 2 of 2"
"wand bottom 1 of 2"
"wand bottom 2 of 2"

The pieces can simply be glued together with super glue or even just some acetone.

cool!! but how can i replace a battery if i glue it?

fantastic design, it would be great if only it had some kind of battery lid

I ordered this one and it worked great... http://a.co/6LXp4p2

Hello,

I ordered the referenced switch from Amazon but it's not right: it's too large, and it has three options (0/I/II) instead of just 0/I in the pictures above.

Does anyone know which switch is the right model? Maybe https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0718X41M5?

Otherwise this wand is awesome, thank you! I printed it in wood filament for my niece and she loves it.

Ok so I just printed all 4...i had to scale down the models to 65%...That being said I most likely lost the ability to add the switch because it's now too small. I'll wait and see...led and batteries arriving tomorrow.

I'll give this as a present to my GF

This is awesome!
But how would you change the batteries?

Hello, very nice project :)
i have a problem :/ how do you glue/join all 4 parts ? :(((( i tried a few different glue but unlucky so far.
Any advice on gluing these part together is welcome :)

Hi Alex,

I glued mine together using gurellia super glue, but you could also use acetone. Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
Fritz

Thank you very much, beautiful print.
I printed this, and installed the electronics.
When I gave it to my nephew he was very excited.

I printed one of these in wood filament from MG Chemicals and stained with a red mahogany stain. Looked great, but forgot to take a picture before I gave it to my cousin who is a big HP fan. I dislike the split down the middle. Any chance you could upload a one piece version of this model?

What filament did you use?

Hi there, can someone help me out (newbie). I have the batteries, wire, switch, led (everything) . . . now what. How do I keep the batteries together inside of the wand? Do I solder them together and solder one wire to each side? Again, please don't judge, just a newbie :)

Hi there!

I actually ended up just using electrical tape to keep the batteries together along with the wires. The other connections I soldered. This was originally made for my niece for Halloween last year. It still works today (she brought it to Universal) and it hasn't fallen apart yet!

Odd, I printed the two full halves, went great. Go to put them together and the lines match up perfectly on one side yet are off slightly on the other. Wand is squared up on it's end so I know both halves are same level.

Thanks so much for this, the model without the switch shows up at a very small scale, like for an action figure?

I think I did the math right, like 1/10th scale?

Amazing work!

I am with Laffranchi... any chance you can upload a version without the switch opening?

Just uploaded!

Great!! Can you upload a model without button hole?

Just uploaded, sorry for the delay!

What is the recommended way to ensure you're able to change out the batteries later?

Unfortunately the way the model is setup now you really can't change them out. But since it's a single LED it should last an extremely long time

I fiddled around a bit and used heatshrink to hold the batteries together and left extra wire inside the wand. I can pull the switch out and fish out the batteties.

Great idea!!

Just printed this! I have the switches, batteries, LEDs and wire. What method did you use to connect the wires and batteries together?

I soldered mine together and used heatshrink tube to hold the two batteries together

I ended up getting this and cutting a section out of the middle and gluing it back together to make it small enough to hold the small batteries. There is probably a better way but I couldn't find any coin cell battery holders.

Great idea to do it two halves. I've been thinking of doing some of these. Thanks

Could you verify that the 4 stl files for smaller print beds are correct? I downloaded them and when opened they are way too small.

Ah ok, also I believe you have the file names reversed, the part that has the switch is named "top" when the switch is actually on the bottom of the wand.

Thanks

For some reason Autodesk Inventor exports STLs in a weird way and I have to scale them by 1000% in Makerware. I went ahead and updated all 6 of the files by bringing them into Makerware, enlarging them by 1000%, and then exporting them as STLs. Sorry about that!

Oh no problem

Ah that would be because of inventor. Just enlarge them by 1000%. I will fix the files.

This would be really cool if printed in wood filament =)

I would love to see someone do that! I just used some Valspar satin spray paint and did not sand the plastic down. The layers actually make a great wood grain look.

Maybe I will just go ahead and do that, I have Sainsmart Light Wood and also Dark wood filament...
