How I Designed This

The DC connector is a power jack found on Ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/221939865049?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

The LED strips are also from Ebay. They can be found in multiple colors to match the color of the lightsaber to be displayed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321842921529?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Here is the power source. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321635171211?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Have not decided if I will put a on/off switch in but should have plenty of space if needed.

The LED should last over 50,000 hours and provide many years of enjoyment. The LED's can be cut every 3 then soldered together +/+ -/-. I did not heat shrink the connections for easy viewing but do recommend. The first one shows what a clean look it can have.

Can you provide a blank center insert? I'd like to add an imperial cog emblem instead of the star was logo

Thanks for the great stand design!

I think we need an Anakin Skywalker name plate too since he had the blue one Luke used in ANH.

There are a couple more designs out there that I've collected. http://www.thingiverse.com/lowlight/collections/lowlights-lightsabers/page:1

Of course there's others scattered around the internet as well.

Sorry for the late reply, been busy. I will try to get the Anakin plate up soon. Thanks for the suggestion.

can you hook me up with better pictures of what you're using to add light to this? it looks "simple" at least more than just using an arduino to power it.

Here is the Instructable link for more explanation. http://www.instructables.com/id/Lightsaber-Base-LED/

Not using a arduino but can be used to change colors if you get the multi led strips. I bought mine on ebay and provided links on Instructables . com. GL and can't wait to see photos.

Mine all printed out perfectly. I think. Pics will be to come. I noticed on the 2 risers, the emblems are stretched and skewed as if the model was not to the original scale. i dont think I did it so im not sure. Its not enough to make me reprint them tho. Thanks for the model :D

My printer is finally fixed to print at .4mm, it was printing .75 due to last owner not cleaning tip correctly. Because of this I was not able to print the emblem risers properly. Let me know if you notice something so I can adjust. Just had knee surgery so I will be down for a week or so. Can't wait to see what you've made.

well if you're down atm and you wana stop buy. Im livestreaming on twitch the painting process and I will be getting to the risers soon. Gonna leave my stream here in a sec to go prime them up. Then when I get back will be painting them probably.

WIll definitely check that out.
