    Just wondering if there was such a thing as a repository with blueprints for many of these scifi weapons & props. Sure would make things easier.

    Typically I prefer to just make something unique, but there are also a few movie props I'd like to recreate so something like this would help. Thanks!

    already seen that one, there doesn't appear to be any scifi weapons though. scifi ships and regular present-day weapons, but not scifi weapons.

    I think you will find that most sci-fi weapon prop building go off movie screenshots and photo reference more than any definitive blueprints.

    there are a lot of Pepakura files these days that can be used as a 3d reference.

    well, not even blueprints. just figured there'd be a nice neat repository of "silhouette" type files somewhere to at least cut out basic shapes from.

    There might be some on here somewhere.
    Is there anything in particular you were looking for?

    not really. was hoping to find a treasure trove of these types of things and maybe get some ideas from what I saw there.

    You can make yours friend,
    Actually i'm using adobe illustrator to make the blueprints for cutting etc.Searching some photos of the props that you are building would help you and than using illustrator draw the lines of the photo( i prefer pen tool) with this you can make vector based drawing.Then print it.I think this is the one of the best ways to do it.

    yeah, i typically mock stuff up in either Photoshop or 3dsmax.

    not a big deal, just figured if there was a good resource for this type of thing it'd be nice to know about it ;)
