Just cut a hole in each piece for the laser pointer to slip in.


Print both pieces of the handle.

I recommend printing a few layers as a test to make sure it fits your laser pointer. If not, scale appropriately.

Print the button on its side, I recommend scaling up 2X, or to your pref.

Drill a hole where the button for your laser pointer lines up with the notch for it and insert button. Some filing may be necessary to accomodate the button without depressing it when the pointer is inserted.

I am unable to open the stl of the upper part in my makerbot software. It just stops working. Do you have any idea what could be the problem?

not sure. Try running it through netfabb? I remember that model had some issues. Not familiar with makerware, as I use only open source software for 3D printing.

Tried in repetier too. It loads, but slice looks like this - http://prntscr.com/6f6ogv (with slic3r) Tried netfabb (the free version), it had some errors but I'm not sure if fixing them isn't "premium version only".

New update just fixed the issue :) guess the model was kinda okay

try Cura slicer, it tends to be more forgiving of models with errors. Also, try running it through the netfabb online stl repair service, that tends to do a much better job than the free version.

I can confirm that Cura produces a valid gcode using the final version I have. Just to make sure this is the same file, I added it as a final version.

May I ask which laser pointer you are using?

I have been working on something similar (just a 1950's ray gun)
to house the laser pointer.
well done!
