Hello,

recently there was a big prop & costumes auction of the latest Resident Evil movies so I decided to expand my game prop collection by adding some elements from the movie.

The grenade prop from the fifth movie caught my attention as it has a nice futurist design and offers the chance to include a micro controller for the led bar.

Moreover, Taku Dazai portfolio images offers very detailed references, so doing a precise copy without direct access to the movie prop should be a piece of cake.

For my replica I decided, to make a CAD model and to produce it with 3d Printing, as fabricating it with a CNC mill, like they did, is out of my budget.

Here is my first model version.

I already made a first revision, by comparing my drawing with the reference one I found some errors in the safety level.

Next step was deciding the internal hardware. I decided to use an Arduino Mini with a Li-Po battery. It's my first time in using a controller board to drive a few leds (the prop has a 10 led segment bar) so I am not 100% sure if this design choice is correct. I used the CAD to plan the internal components layout before printing it and I verified that everything can fit inside easily.

I am waiting for the electronic components shipping from China, so my build will be paused for a few weeks.

Last step I will do in the next days is to rework the CAD model an split it in separate parts and add internal supports for the internal components.

I prefer to split 3D prints in separate parts when it is functional to internal parts assembly and for surface polishing.

hi,

you have good choices ! so weird that it's the only thread about this lovely designed grenade. i liked it much in the previous movie, when she had a belt of these nades. do you plan sharing a 3D file to print it ? we are perhaps very few to like it, but yes personnally i like it too !!

Hi, thank you for your support. It seems that Resident Evil movies don't raise very much interest in the costume/prop makers community.

I am sorry, usually I don't share my 3d files (they are either done by me or commissioned). I upload them on my shapeways shop and sell the prints with a reasonable kickback, that way I can finance a little my prop making.

I finished the design of the grenade parts. This video nicely illustrates all the separate parts I disassembled the prop and how they will fit together.

for this, i dont have a 3d printer.. but a good friend has, except time to handle it.., i'm waiting in list for an overthruster/ buckaroo banzai

will it be there so ? https://www.shapeways.com/shops/totenpf

well that would be the simpliest part so if you can 3d it in "real" and protect your concept work
i'm living in neighbourhood country.. France..
not sure if there are other fellas around for a resident evil nade, but yes i hope you will make it appear in your e-shop so !!

Totenpf thanks for your NO Help really a pleasure. just 2 guys in the world & no help. really no thanks man..(and i'm italian blooded too).. but hey we figured as Resident evil movies & the Walking dead have proven.. the problem is not zombies aftermath.. it's just weirdness of "humanity"..


so well, that motivated us.., here it is, the #1, we "nearly" succeeded. wood & aluminium.. really not an easy task to repro, Taku Dazai has done an impressive design
