Print your own "Personalize Your Own" Sonic Screwdriver based on the newest 12th Doctor's in the 2015 episode "Hell Bent".
Designed on tinkercad, forked from a build by kightblade77, and heavily modified to facilitate FDM printing. https://tinkercad.com/things/dg0Brw6dRQJ.
From the Personalize Your Own Sonic Screwdriver. Replacements at https://www.character-online.com/spare-parts-dr-who-inner-unit-for-personalized-son. If anyone finds a source for this part in the USA for a reasonable price, please let me know!
This print should be compatible with http://smile.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Personalize-Screwdriver-Combinations/dp/B0056EO5IS and http://smile.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Trans-temporal-Sonic-Screwdriver.
All the pieces are interchangeable. If you own the other two kits, that should bring your total up to 5 Handles, 5 button sections, and 10 ends (which are interchangeable top or bottom). If my math is right, up to 2169 total combinations.
I printed three of these on my Printrbot Play with Hatchbox PLA. The light blue translucent emitter was initially printed in ABS, but after multiple print failures I switched to translucent white PLA.
After painting my first successful print, I started making design changes to make it more printable. The first design change I made was to split the blue and silver components as separately printable parts. This reduced the amount of support structure needed. I further split the silver into two rings, four bars, and a cage, for the handle. The more pieces I used, the cleaner the final design. More pieces do require more gluing of parts in the end.
Recommend a Silver and Gold Sharpie, super glue, translucent white/clear or blue for the emitter, dark blue (tardis blue?) for the large components, and silver for the remaining parts. And a sealant.
