This can be assembled with no glue. It is a much more accurate replica that the one previously posted. It was designed from scratch, only using reference images of screen used blasters. It's fun to play with, take apart, and assemble. Most importantly, it was designed for 3d printing, so it's got curves in all the right places.

This blaster was made at MarsCon this weekend. They told guests we weren't allowed to bring realistic-looking weapons into the convention, so I didn't. I just brought my 3d printer in and made the blaster there...

Things just snap together. Two pins to hold the handle to the main block. Slip the three cylinders onto the back plug, which goes into the back hole of the main block. the nozzle goes in the front of the main block. The guard goes into the handle. The small crosshair piece goes inside the back scope. Back scope goes into the front scope, and the entire scope assembly attaches to the rest of the blaster using the clip. You can also force a second crosshair piece into the tip of the scope front piece if you press it in from the inside, using a pen or something similar. The two big pieces and the clip were printed with 5% infill, and two extra shells. Basically everything else was 0% infill and 2 extra shells. You can print a spare nozzle in 'safety orange' to swap out when the local fuzz gives you a hard time.

I like printing with the pads, and peeling them off when it's done. It'll keep things flatter when printing in ABS, even with the heated bed. The pads are also useful for part which have little surface area touchign the platform. I prefer these to using a raft because of how much more it'll hold down the part to prevent it from curling. I guess I'm a daredevil. The files in the .zip with 'z' in front of the file name don't have the pad.

No idea what I am doing wrong. Printed the mail block @5% infill with two extra shells. All of the "holes" came out solid and aren't the same diameter of the back plug and nozzle.

Printed out all of the smaller pieces with two extra shells and 0 infill. The three "discs" have an inside diameter that is too small for the back plug.

I have to be doing something wrong. Need to get it figured out before I print the handle and scopes.

Any advice?

Awsome armor and gun! Is the armor 3d printed?

Wowzers, ~$300CDN in black ABS with T20/T16 tip to have it printed at the Red Deer College here in Alberta, Canada
Just to ask the obvious question, was there a specific reason it wasn't saved as a single .stl for one print = one gun?

Can you confirm are these sizes correct?

Part Name / Scale

back_cyls / 2.4 x 0.7 x 0.2 in
back_plug / 0.4 x 0.4 x 1.5 in
block / 6.3 x 3.7 x 1.2 in
clip / 1.4 x 1.5 x 0.5 in
guard / 2.3 x 3.2 x 0.5 in
handlev2 / 5.5 x 2.0 x 2.6 in
nozzle / 0.4 x 0.4 x 1.4 in
pin / 0.4 x 0.8 x 0.3 in
scope_back_v1 / 3.8 x 2.7 x 2.9 in
scope_front_v1 / 2.0 x 2.0 x 4.0 in

Cheers for that, printed out nicely and looks fantastic assembled and painted up

Just amazing. So well thought out and easy to print. Turned out perfect for me!

Fascinating looks like something right out of the Portal games. Great print dood.

What software did you use to get the picture of it all lined up?

Doh should have read what you wrote about infill. Printed 2 handles at 33% infill and they split to hell when they cooled. Can't want for my Filabot to arrive. Will try 5% tonight.

Finally a decent excuse to go buy some black ABS!! w00t!

This has to the most impressive 3D item that I have printed so far. Awesome!
I love the way it just neatly clicks together. Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. It's amazing what you can make when you care about your projects.

there's a slight gap between the handle and the main block. i modified it and it's better now. i'm going to upload v2 of the handle shortly. no other pieces change

upgraded handle for Scout Trooper Blaster

Awesome work there... Will print this as the other one has to many hollow sections and breaks to easy.
Plus the scope doesn't look screen accurate.

Nice work! I was going to print Astaines but decided against it as it had holes and didn't slice nicely enough for my discerning taste. ;) From one Star wars junkie to another...may the force be with you!!
