Here is the version 2 of my Joi Emanator. Included is the render that I am basing a lot of my design on, along with film stills, but this is the main source. I realized the inner "tube" was actually square, which combined with a square peg should make it a lot stronger.
Unfortunately it is now two halves instead of one, but this is again for stability and with this being a static prop in mind instead of something hollow for electronics. Its just too small to get into for LED's with this design, so it is something for me to keep striving towards.
I want to give thanks to Dave from TipTopWorkshop for helping to double check my work, and RPF user Sundowner, who I bounced ideas around with during the version 2 process.
Here is my version 1: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2630241
Version 1 is more appropriate for attempting a light or sound install, where as v2 was created with being a static prop in mind, or a base for casting.
Infill shouldn't matter as much with this being a two piece design instead of my previous three, but as we all know, the higher it is the stronger the print, so keep your intended use for this prop in mind and adjust accordingly! I prefer rafts since it gives a clean bottom to the print.
After printing it should be quiet easy to install. Insert the bottom half into the smaller section of the top, with the square peg hole on the bottom lining up with the small square slot of the top. Insert the 2mm pin in, it will be a very tight fit as to eliminate the need for an adhesive. This keeps the bottom from just sliding off, and lines everything up to be as screen accurate as I can make it out to be.
This is the version 2, of MANY designs to try and get this prop right, while still keeping it functional. I have included the render used for a lot of my inspiration, as well I look at all of the limited amount of film stills I could find to try and get the scale as good as I could.
One of my sources for scale.
Great photo of the size in Officer K's hands.
A good rendering of the lettering, omitted from this version.
