Lightsaber with internal components mega project! by sirmakesalot #3dthursday
Really great lightsaber assembly project from Greg McRoberts (Sirmakesalot) in Toronto, known for his V8 Engine model and other educational projects. Thingiverse Thing 35120:
Be come the Jedi you were destined to be! Manufacture your lightsaber and take your place in the battle between the Jedi and Sith!
This is a complete user assembled model of one of the greatest allies a Jedi has!
“Your lightsaber is your life”
Order of components assembly to come in the form of video soon along with pictures. The parts only go together one way and isn’t too hard to figure out.
Be warned the crystal may need to print with support. I had trouble rendering a good looking crystal. I may make my own by hand or harvest one!
Print some components in different colours for variations.
I can’t wait to see other copies!
I am releasing a kit of parts next that you can mix and match for more variations so stay tuned!
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
