3D Printed Hedron
Created & Donated by Carasibana
This marvellous glowing object is a 3D printed LED light up Hedron based on the Hedrons from the plane of Zendikar in Magic: The Gathering!
Hedrons are ancient stone monoliths found throughout the plane of Zendikar. When properly aligned, hedrons become powerful tools of binding. When this 3D printed version is properly aligned, it may or may not be a powerful tool of binding (it probably isn’t) but when turned on it will light up with a nice blue glow throughout, powered by six LEDs. Possibly it will bind someone to itself through mesmerized admiration…
The designs of the patterns that make up the Hedron are accurate to the papercraft Hedron version that Wizards of the Coast released.
This was made with PLA plastic using a 3D printer, and is approximately 22 centimeters tall by 8 centimeters across. It is powered by two AAA Batteries, and held together with rare earth magnets.
Please remember that as this is a hand crafted, 3D printed item, it doesn’t have the flawlessly clean finish that you would find on a commercial product. Every part of this was designed, built, and finished by one person.
