Happy (post) Star Wars day everyone!
This year I've decided to do another iconic weapon from the Original Trilogy and so I've remixed the lightsaber model of Jacky Wan aka Valcrow of Redicubrics (one of the first things, I've ever 3D printed).
The original model is pretty amazing with technical solutions that should be taught, however it has a bit of a weak spot at the clamp-pin connection that tends to break while playing with the hilt or wearing it for cosplay unless you glue it together.
First I've decided to only implement the connections, I've used for my graflex lightsaber, but then I got carried away in the process and remodeled other parts of the hilt too.
As Jacky's original model this one is also optimized for support free fdm printing and easy assembly that requires no glue. I've printed most parts at 0,15 mm layer height with Fillamentum PLA on my Ultimaker 2+.
For assembly see the improvised instructions in the photos! :) Sorry for the crappy crop! Here is the full version: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxjmPRfHvT-/
Happy printing and may the sticking force be with your buildplates!
