These are some additions I made to @3DPRINTINGWORLD ‘s superior lightsaber. I like to cosplay and wanted these things to finish the saber for a prop I so I can put on it at a con.

The tip cap is similar as his, however two holes have been added. One for the Key Ring and one as an air gap. I discover the blades lengthen significantly better if there may be an air inlet to alleviate air strain.

The Key Ring has a slight break in a single aspect so you possibly can slide it within the gap. Then superglue the 2 ends.

The cap has a thumb tab that can assist you get the cap off and contained in the cap are small tabs that latch to carry the cap on. This was essential addition to maintain the blade within the hilt whereas sporting the saber in your belt. I printed it at 100% and had no bother popping it on and off. Relying on the way you printed your saber, you’ll have to extend/lower the dimensions in your slicer.

Each Thursday is #3dthursday right here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing neighborhood has ardour and dedication for making stable objects from digital fashions. Not too long ago, we’ve got seen electronics tasks built-in with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so every Thursday we rejoice and spotlight these daring pioneers!

Have you ever thought of constructing a 3D challenge round an Arduino or different microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the again of your HD monitor? And don’t neglect the numerous LED projects which are doable if you end up modeling your tasks in 3D!
