Your own files ?Painted up two half scale Melted Vader helmets.
Being that I am a painter, I don’t usually get to see things in their final displayed state in their home. The client usually has me work a little paint magic and then they find a shelf and a base or whatever may fit with the particular commission. With these, I get to make the bases myself for the first time, and that’s a lot of fun. Not sure what to do, a wood base? Resin printed? Laser cut? What shape? Been sketching out some ideas here and there on the workbench.
I can’t wait for the Saturn to be readily available, I missed out on the early bird, twice !!!I have the Mars and the Saturn. I absolutely loved my Mars so I figured the Saturn was a safe bet. I’ve already got about 20 hours on the printer and don’t have a single bad thing to say about it. The monoscreen offers a much needed speed boost. My exposure time on the Mars was 13 seconds and the Saturns exposure is 3!! It still has every bit of sharpness that the smaller Mars has, I was able to print parts with very small tolerances and very thin parts for this Obi-wan saber below with no issues.
I do wish it was a little bigger, but I plan to pick up the Elegoo Jupiter whenever it becomes available. With bigger machines becoming more readily available and services like FacFox being out there for even bigger stuff? I will never touch an FDM print again.

I sent my photon s back after 1 month with a knackered main board
I’ve so much resin printing to do I’m getting very impatient
Nice saber, where’s the file from if you don’t mind me asking
This is the first one I made. Its completely inaccurate. I had a bad template to work from and none of the sides are straight.The first one i did was completely by hand and it was ok but I figured it could be better so I had the outside shape machine cut. I had to put the blade edge and round the bottom of the blade by hand.
Beautiful and somehow mysterious! You captured the feel of the original prop really well.One of my friends recently saw that an original communication briefcase from the original MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE TV show was up for auction. He asked if I could duplicate it for his collection of Spy-related "gadgets." I was able to locate some of the vintage parts but had to substitute some modern days parts. I tried to get the look of the prop and not create an exact duplicate. Here are photos of the real prop and my version of it. Hope you guys like it. --Ed

Nice. How is it coming along?
I just finished one intended as a retirement trophy for a weapons shop guy at work. I see the thing every day so it was nice running out for measurements when needed. This one is at 1/5th scale but i'm planning a more detailed 1/3rd scale version for myself.
Check my progress here. Browning M2HB, M3 & AN/M2 machine gun 3D printed - Terminator RBS-80?
How did you make your 1/5 ones? They are nice especially with the full helicopter mount.
