Work on the outer surface of the shaft has been going on for 2 weeks! These pieces have been 3D printed and will soon be prepped for resin casting.
3D prints are done which show the full size of the staff as a mockup. I've ordered and received some extraordinarily small LEDs to use as the shaft's inner light source.
In this part, I go over the technical challenge of picking the lighting mechanism and obtaining the raw materials to make the internal shaft structure with the right lighting properties.
