The Idea for this came from my little girl, so I designed it to her exact specifications -
The design spec -
Daddy, Can you make me a 'holly wand'? and I want it to tinkly, and glow and look really nice, and be Purple and Pink. Thanks.
It was done in Sketchup and after some thought on how I was going to make the wand bit, I dawned on me that I could just use a pencil.
Print lots of them, and if you select one of the ones with a letter in, then you really need to use clear plastic or translucent so the letter can be seen from the outside.
I have only made letters for all the little people I needed to print one for, so sorry if your letter is not in the list - but I'm happy to make more if you want anything specific?
It's printed with multiple colours and using layer selective printing, so you can change filament or join them together.
You should slice this with 0.3mm layers -
You will need a reasonably well calibrated machine to print the top layers, and there are 5 layers to go from the initial bridge to the start of the face, so it will be nice and flat by the time that starts.
The pencil hole is sized to be a good tight fit - you don't want it flying off when doing all that magic!
Little ones seem to like them.
Some are glow-in-the dark, some are clear and some are a mix of glowing, rattling/tinkling joy. - this should be a perfect stocking filler, so get printing now!
I have included the Sketchup file so you can alter to whatever you need.
Please upload a picture if you print one.
