My $.02Just to hijack my own thread and ask a bit of advice. I'm new here and I've started build threads for 2 of my most interesting projects but I have like 6 on the go.
Is it worth creating build threads for all my big projects on here, as I give them away after and the feedback I've been getting so far is extremely valuable, or just keep it to one or two so I'm not spamming?
I just finished the base model for this last night to kick off another one, Shatner is coming to town next month and I'd love to build one and get a sig, lifelong fan:

It's a full light/sound model for a TOS type 2, I just did a base type 1 first to get started.
What do I have on the go? (all for 3D printing)
Aliens Pulse Rifle, fully electronic and mechanical. I have the mechanical done and working on the code with Spidey74
Mando pistol fully electronic with working trigger and selector, almost done, works awesome
E-11 Light and Sound, also almost done. Stock folds out, bolt works scope lights up with proper display, etc
SE14r, same features as above, working
DC17, convertible prop/rubber band gun
Luke/Vader ESB sabers, fully electronic and battle read. PVC core with collar makes them incredibly strong. Models done, demos done, power holding me up
Lawgiver, mechanical/light sound, voice recognition, oled (that's the other project I have here) modeling done, code a nightmare but mostly done (also working with Spidey74)
5th element stones, light up with animated effects, code done, models done, in paint

Different build threads is the way to go. You're not spamming since every one of your projects is unique and packed with tons of details. Besides, a single thread will just be too difficult to manage and for others to follow since builders and makers will be interested in different projects. Conversely, you don't want too many active build threads if you can't keep up and be responsive to the feedback and interest. Find a balance that works.
