If you want to make the electronic version of this staff a fair amount of Arduino knowledge is required. This is unfortunately not a project for beginners. It requires ordering a custom PCB.
The Ma’Tok staff is a staff weapon used by Jaffa warriors in the Star Gate series and movies. It is used as a ranged energy weapon (Firing from the oval side, which can be opened) or as a melee weapon (club)
This model is a staff. The staff is quite big and is meant to be post-processed. Instead of printing the long cylindrical parts of the staff, we recommend using a 140 cm aluminum tube 30mm in outer diameter (2 mm wall thickness)
There are two versions of the Ma’Tok Jaffa staff
- Static staff – closed staff
- Openable staff – files contain mechanical parts which can be assembled into a functional openable staff using electronics. 140 cm aluminum tube 30mm in outer diameter (2 mm wall thickness) is required.
Files contain pieces of the staff ready to be 3D printed and complete staff files (obj), that is not cut into smaller pieces. All files are full detailed
At 100% scale the Staff dimensions are:
Width approx. 165 mm
Length approx. 1970 mm
Height approx. 135 mm
You can scale the model as you wish
Printing settings will vary greatly depending on your specific printer.
We recommend a layer height of 0.2 mm on FDM printers. All parts are aligned to the printing platform for easy manipulation. Most of the parts need minimal or no use of printing supports to save printing time and filament. For reliable printing, we also recommend setting a brim to the Zat’nik’tel, because of its height. It will ensure that the parts will not come off the printing platform during the printing process. Printing settings will vary greatly depending on your specific printer.
Do you like the model and don’t have a 3D printer? There are lots of people who offer 3D printing services these days. Try searching for someone who offers them in your area.
This fan-made model was brought to life by 3Demon. We are a group of modeling and 3D printing enthusiasts based in Prague, Czech Republic.
