Hi guys! I'm new here. I would like to know about the making custom props of the Sonic Screwdrivers. I made of a model for my OC Doctor from a Fanfic that i'm creating and i would like to make the costume of the my own Doctor for cosplay.

What an interesting design! I'd love to know what your Doctor looks like to go with it. In terms of making the sonic, what are your goals? 3d printing can be an effective way of making props, but obviously won't have the exact heft of a metal version. Are you looking to commission someone to make it for you or produce it yourself? There's a seller on Etsy who does custom metal sonics with lights and all in, but with price tags to match.

Very cool. Interesting design! I'm working on a custom Sonic Screwdriver for my original Doctor too. I have thoughts on my own costume as well... Hence my screen name 13doctorwho.

Make the blue part with gold gears 2d first. Then you can wrap it around a rigid pipe. If you take a flat pic and 3d print it, you can change the levels/height of the print based on the darkness or lightness of the 2d sections.

Draw it at full scale with EXACT measurements.

I would plan it in sections:
The blue/purple cloudy area.
The crown and base with support bars.
The pink tip
The blue with gears
The gold skirt
Gold Pincers
Green bulb.

Ignore me if I am being wayyyyyy too complicated

Good luck in you quest. Plenty of xp awaits.
