A weapon for a civilised age...

Postby _Lee_ » Sun May 08, 2016 7:26 pm

So this has kept me busy tonight. Obi Wan ANH lightsaber.

Believe it or not, this was a £60 shipped 3D PRINTED KIT!!!!

It went from this:

To this after it arrived to me :

I actually broke the pin for the clamp but will be trying to get a new one.

Its blood amazing what we, the human race are able to do nowadays. 3d printers are amazing.

Hey bud,

That's an original AS plastic handwheel although not exactly the same type as on the original prop. I did have as set of the ones they used for the original but sold them for £650 around 5 years ago - yes, two tap handles (hot and cold) for £650!!! Prop hunters will pay huge money for the right parts. I tried this instead of the 3d printed one and liked it better as its chromed.

You can buy the kits here:

Lee, 3D printers are mad. Incredible technology.

Your build looks amazing. Nicely finished.

I'm rather blown away, however, by the tap handle price! I need to get scouring the car boots for old tap handles....

Beauty. There's gotta be a way now of displaying it with the option of beam coming out?

Outstanding! Hope they'll produce more in sabers the upcoming future. Although I sense Disney/Lucasfilm aren't amused....
