    1 Week Ago  Nov 14, 2014, 9:21 AM - 3 piece Stormtrooper & SW Rebels comlink #1

    I was inspired by The Schlitzie's awesome Comlink with internals from this thread: http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=228683

    I had prevously designed a TK commlink (single piece)



    and here is the modified design to be able to dissasemble in 3 pieces that he asked for...






    I just uploaded the model ans should be printing one soon.

    Thanks

    Nice! All that room in there for little greeblies!

    Would it be possible to have the option of the comlink body printed in Black Strong & Flexible Polished and the ends white? That way I won't have to worry about primer/paint layers gumming up the threaded parts.

    I just looked through your Shapeways pages as well, and I also noticed that you have hollow scopes (makes sense, printed and all) those would be awesome candidates for custom illuminated scopes. Yet another thing on my to-do list. I just need to find someone to do some custom photo etched parts (sights).

    Let me upload the comlink in two files, the engine alone for black and the endcap and hovi for white. I dont like the black material shapeway uses because it feels rubbery and scratches very easily. But you might like it more than i do..

    give me a minute.

    That's understandable. I'll just have it as a display piece with my blade plugs and restraining bolts so it should be safer than if it were a trooping accessory.

    Black material is more expensive than the white, so it will be about 2 bucks higher... but at least you wont need to paint.

    Cap and hovi: https://www.shapeways.com/model/2858...k-2-piece.html

    Have fun!

    Very nice. I need to pick one of those up in the future.

    Speaking of rebels props... Any thoughts about modifying your thermal detonator design to make one of those half sphere magnetic type seen on the show?
