Star Lord’s Elemental Gun #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Thingiverse user StarJeff designed a prop replica of Star Lord’s elemental gun.

starlord_elemental_gun2_display_large

This is a fully printable 1:1 scale adaptation of Star-Lord Elemental Gun from the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy.
Intellectual property belongs to Marvel.
It is designed to be printed of the Ultimaker 2 but it can be printed on other machines as well (with the same printable area). It is also designed to have minimal use of support material.
It is sliced into 13 differents parts (with different parts for the left gun and the right one)… You can find a step by step set of images for the assembly. For this version, there are no pins to lock the pieces together. If some of you are having a hard time putting it together without pins, i’ll add them to the V2.
Most of the parts are not placed correctly when loaded in Cura (or equivalent). I recommand you to always check the position of the parts and move them in the best printing position for better results.
I also recommand you to change the settings to have a reasonalbly thick shell to prevent the materials from curving inside the holes of the density grid (It often happens when you have a wide flat surface… Trust me on this one). I found that 1mm of bottom/top shell thickness is enough.
If you have any questions, ideas for improvement or complaints, feel free to comment or message me directly.
If you’re using this model for whatever public purpose , it would be greatly appreciated that you mention me (with the exception of robbing a bank with the printed gun, that i wish you would not mention me… ^^”)

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!
