Voldemort's wand

Voldemort's wand has been finished!

design of the Voldemort wand 1 After a great deal of time spent on gethering information on the wand we had everything to begin. Basic infos and sizes came from the Official Harry Potter Wiki page, of course. We used pictures from other replicas and screen caps as inspiration.

design of the Voldemort wand 2 After the model was done. It had to be sliced to smaller pieces. Tom Riddle's wand was 13 1/2"(34.29 cm) in length which would have been too much for our Reprap's plate. The wand was devided to 2 sides and each side was devided to 4 parts. 8 long parts are too much for one plate. The pringing would have been too long in one run anyway. They were printed in a couple of sessions.
