Luke’s Lightsaber #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Fuegotaino shares:

This is an offshoot of Luke’s (or Obi Wan’s) lightsaber.
The handgrip unscrews from the hilt to unveil a chamber to install a mini Arduino board and batteries for electronics (or you can store money or candy or small trinkets).

I’m also an in-the-closet smoker so I’m including a modified lower hilt that fits two cigarettes and a mini lighter in case anyone wants to use it as an emergency stash at work like I do.

The lightsaber is sectioned to be printed separately, glued together, and painted for a personalized look. Once together, the saber incorporates a slot to accommodate any necessary wiring/LED through to the emitter. There are two activation plate housing stl files: one is hollow to allow for the install of two mini 3×1.5mm PCB pushbutton switches, “AP Housing (Arduino).stl”; the other is solid, “AP Housing (solid).stl” for those that just want the saber.

The photo is a solid version of the print with the cigs hidden in the hilt (my first attempt). My next attempt will be an arduino-powered electronic version, but if anyone builds one first –or any version of these files– I’d love to see it!

Enjoy!

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!
