Hello together!

I didn't want to believe it at first. Here is the orthogonal direct comparison of the DC-17m and DC-15s from the game data (no manipulation, no perspective view):










As a part of my RC building, I also have modeled an almost accurate DC-15s pistol by using SolidWorks.




Dimension: 35.2 x 20.8 x 6.3 cm (13.85 x 8.19 x 2.48 inch) !!

The DC-15s is unbelievable huge.

For a test I generated a Pepakura file and assembled the paper model.




After the Pepakura test I got the seven 3D-printed main parts (in polyamide) from VisioTech:
















For the paint job four layers were applied: Primer - Silver Rim - clear coat - Black silk mat




After the painting job, I have divided the electronic components of the blaster into modules.

The board is the heart of the blasters:



The board is powered by 9V and can play 1000 8-bit WAV files from a MicroSD card.


To get a shooting-feedback, I have installed a vibration module:



The motor is from a PS2 controller.


For the power-on lamp I used a blue 8mm-360°-LED.




The blue muzzle LED (Luxeon 3Watt) and the speaker are mounted in a common module:




Before reassembling everything looked like this:




The energy and VU-display consist of eight blue SMD LEDs:




The blaster now looks like this:




I have uploaded a longer video clip (about 17 minutes) about the assembly and functionality (15:42 min) on my Youtube channel:

That is truly sweet looking pistol. Any chance you still have the STL code? I just picked up a 3D printer for myself and I would love to build that thing on it.

Sorry, but I will not submit the STL or 3D code for free. For that I have made ​​too many bad experiences. If you want, I could request the printing price for you.
 
Of course, I wouldn't take the code for free as I would send some funds your way for the work put into making the code.
