    This is my take on the Episode 7 3D printed blaster. All printed apart from the barrel which is PVC pipe in the blaster building tradition.

    Its by no means perfect and I had to make a few changes to accommodate the PVC barrel but i'm very pleased with the result. :)

    Your comments gratefully accepted, be kind.

    Some additional shots of the stock which I have just added. The stock and the standard cap can be screwed on and off to make things easier. I'm sure I have seen a picture of the regular VII stormtroopers carrying the version of the blaster with a stock and not just captain phasma.

    Wow that looks fantastic, great work. I just purchased a 3D printer and I hope I can create 3D models like this.

    Nobody ever mentions how much materials cost for certain items to be printed. Even ballpark costs would be nice.

    You've made an extremely decent job! Well done! I can see more details on your model than on some "professional" propmakers' ones.

    And that screw-on stock is amazing. Did you design it, or did you buy the ATI stock and converted it?

    Thanks for all the kind words. Filament wise I could probably print 3 or 4 from a single drum of filament which cost about £18. Cheap as chips. There is over 100 hours of work gone into the model which I did myself from various reference images from Celebration. Probably looking at 20 - 30 hours printing time for all the bits. It took many more hours than that and lots of failed prints while I worked on cutting up the model for printing. Lots of epoxy and super glue and lights are from a head torch. Probably cost £20 to make in materials but it's the sheer number of hours of assembly and the design work in the first place.

    Stock is my own design based on the single reference image from the trailer and reference photos of the ATI stock. 3D printed.

    version 2 is in the works with a working trigger and hopefully less assembly.

    Knew I had seen troopers with stocks on their boasters. Look at both the troopers and the flame troopers in the background. May just be artistic licence by the artist but I love that look.

    Yep, it looks like the "heavy troopers" have them as well as Phasma.

    Great work on your blaster!
