  1. Yes, the print lines are pretty tough but it's ok. I guess it's also because of corona and that he is behind the scedule with the shippings and therefore he needs to finish things faster. Maybe... :-D I saw the files and I'm thinking about printing the magazin slot with this files and add it to my build because it's much more detailed. I just bought myself a Creality Ender 3 V2 (Hope it arrives tomorrow) but this printer is not able to print those fine details. So I'll print a dummy to get the dimensions right and than I'll let the part been printed via shapeways with fine detail plastic. It'll cost about 30€ which is ok. My father in law has a bench drill so I'll drill some additional holes to the main body at the weekend.
  2. I‘m thinking about it. I don‘t know if l‘m able to do it this accurate since I don‘t have a working bench with screw clamps to fix it properly. With the ABS it would work but with the aluminum pipe... this could end badly, but I might find a solution. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
  3. Ok, the weather was nice today and I spent some time spray filling, UV curing and sanding... Some details need some more attention but i'm kind of satisfied with the result in general. The main print lines are gone and now it's time for the small files More to come next weekend
  4. Thanks mates... Yeah 3D prints are pretty tough... My Mando Blaster was much easier than this one. I got some additional tips by a member of my squad and I bought another spray filler for the minor printlines. Using liquid resin is kind of messy... But on the weekend it's time for sanding and some more sanding. I'll post some updates one the weekend. I think it's printed in PLA and the black automotive spray is a good idea.
  5. Ok, I made some progress with the build. I focused on the main body parts. First I used different types of sandpaper to get rid of the biggest printing lines. After that I used wood putty for the main parts to fill the seams. And after drying I gave it another run with the sandpaper. The result is still a little rough so the next step was to use liquid UV resin on the parts. This should fill the last seams and adds a little bit More stability to the parts. Well it‘s not really necessary but still a nice additional effect. I promise to take better pictures during the build! :-D Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
  6. Well hello there! You‘re really putting a lot of afford into your pack. I like it. the grey is looking a little bit to shiny in my opinion. Maybe because the color was fresh?!
  7. Hi folks, after finishing some other side projects around my house it's time for another SW related project. Since you're no "real" sandtrooper if you don't have a bapty, I decided to build one. At the end of last year I earned some experience with smoothing out the printlines of 3D printed parts with liquid resin. So I want to gowith a 3D printed Bapty version made by 3d props NL. I've ordered a diy kit but due the pandemic everything took much longer. Last week was BBD and I was confused why the box so big because I expected it to be much smaller. And the reason was that it almost came completely assambled. I disassambled the blaster today to seperate all the parts because smoothing out is much easier. The whole blaster is a mixture of 3D printed parts aligned arround an aluminum pipe and some parts which were casted in resin. I'll definately want to exchange some parts like the scope rail and the trigger guard with metal parts but first there will be a lot of filling and sanding. There are some real good WIP in the forum and Originalprop is a good resource. I'll keep you guys updated! Cheers Arne
  8. Congrats Joe! Now get yourself some blue milk! Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
  9. No magic at all?! I‘m shocked... [emoji16] Just kidding. How sturdy is it? I guess it is an opportunity for areas which are not that much stressed mechanically? Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk

  11. Nice work Joe! Good luck with your review. Gesendet von iPhone mit Tapatalk
  12. Beeing inspired by @Omaha Joe mannequin I added some arms to mine this weekend... Next project will be a dewback prod. My brother in law works in a company with access to a lathe machine (is this the correct translation?!) and he'll try to build the pieces based on bigwam drawings. More to come!
