Such a cute cosplay :D

anyone else have issues printing Part_4? This is one of many problem areas my slicer is finding. ( the model also has many weird intersecting surfaces when viewed in Maya as well)

Came to these comments looking for a similar solution for part 4. In Cura, not matter how I position the model it has missing sections. It's really bizarre.
A different user fixed the model for printing.

Reys Staff Part 4 Fix

Ahhhhhh brilliant! I actually ended up remodeling that part myself, and it worked fine. Didn't even think to look on here for it. Glad you found a solution!

Can you upload all STL files not some and the rest Makerbot files, please?

The STLs and Thing files are complete. Files are uploaded numerically. Some are grouped together as the same part is duplicated in sequence.

Nobody else has had issues locating files. Which parts are you not seeing?

I see some stl files, maybe like 10 or so, the rest are only showing up as duplicates in makerbot or missing stl files like 20-24 are only in makerbot files.

There is no 24th part. The total build is 23 pieces. There are 13 STL files uploaded, but some of them you have to print several times as the parts are duplicated.

Here are the STL files you need to build:
Part 1_23.stl (print two parts)
Part 2-6-22.stl (print three parts)
Part 3-21.stl (print two parts)
Part 4.stl (print one part)
Part 5.stl (print one part)
Part 7.stl (print one part)
Part 8.stl (print one part)
Part 9-11-20.stl (print three parts)
Part 10-12-13-16.stl (print four parts)
Part 14-15.stl (print two parts)
Part 17.stl (print one part)
part 18.stl (print one part)
Part 19.stl (print one part)

Again, all the STL files are uploaded and they are clearly labeled by part sequence.

Just about finished my staff for my daughter's costume, broke the top which is why it is still green. Went with the rubber feet to keep that from happening again. Found some material for the grips and used leather instead of gaffers tape. Thanks for the design, it really looks cool. Too bad they consider it a weapon and we can;t bring it to school.

Does anyone know the total weight of all the components? (i.e. NOT including the wood dowel/strap/leather grip)
My local library charges $0.10/gram and I want to figure out if it will be cost effective to print there.

Thanks!

Looks great. By chance you have a good cheap source for brown gaffer's tape?

I had bought a small roll online on Amazon. I have since then upgrade both the child's staff and adult stuff using hobby leather. Photos have been posted on the make page.

Second what CecyFz is saying, can you make a printing BOM with the file name and quantities of each?

Thanks!

Sorry I am late to responding, as I have been traveling.

There are a total of 23 sections. The part numbers are in order of assembly. The thing files are all single prints. If you look at the stl files, you'll see that some that certain parts are meant to be repeated.

Part_1-23.stl (This is the end cap piece, so print two. There are two versions. Once is larger)
Part_14-15.stl (print two pieces)
Part_10-12-13-16.stl (these are the primary grips. 12 and 13 are two consecutive pieces, but separated to allow for smaller build volumes)
Part_3-21new.stl (print two pieces)

Hope this helps.

Hey JediTropper! I didn't understand excatly what parts I have to print more than once. Would you be so kind as to help me?

What I found is that the parts are only slightly oversized to fit on 1/2" copper pipe. So was planning to mount them on that.

I am printing the parts now and have run into a few issues. All of the parts are coming in with an inside diameter of 0.69". Standard EMT 1/2" conduit runs 0.708" or higher. So the parts are too small. It was mentioned above that they are sized for this pipe and they are not quite. I actually took digital calipers and went to Home Depot and measured all that they had in stock. The diameters ranged from 0.705" to 0.712". Also parts 14,15, 17 and 19 printed out as solids not hollow in the center. Not sure if that is a database issue or a printing issue.

Are you printing at 110% as noted in the Thing Summary?

I printed them without modification from the download. In the summary, it stated that they were already scaled to 110%. Could it be a printing issue?

I would try scaling them to 110% for 1/2" pipe.

Ok to do that but if they were stored here already scaled, how does the scaling information get reset in the file?

The Thing files were uploaded as pre-scaled.

Try using the STL files. Sorry, it's been awhile since i uploaded these and did the build myself.

Re-printing all of the files rescaled to 104.5%. This makes the inner diameter of the parts 18.5 to 18.7mm. The 1/2" EMT pipe I got from Home Depot measured 18.00mm.

Can anyone explain how to print up the parts 10/12/13/16? I'm not sure what the best way would be to print up a part like that. The rest seem like they would print up just fine.

I printed it standing straight up without issue.

When I print it straight up the expanded sections sag downwards as there's nothing below it to support the layer.

Did you ever solve the problem? I know this has been almost a year ago.

Check your print settings. I printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2, at standard quality with 20mm layer height.

Here is a timelapse of that part's build.

I rotated in on the Y axis (so I layed it down) and printed half of it at a time. I couldnt get the overhangs to print correctly, but by laying it down i was able to eliminate the problem. Only issue is that I have to glue the two halves together

im making this on a 3/4" and im 5'4" what should i change the scale to ??

Star Wars LPA NN-14 Rey's Blaster Pistol w/ Compartment for Electronics
by greggo

Just wanted to pass along that this project was a huge hit at our local ComicCon. My daughter rocked the Rey staff, blaster, and Luke's lightsaber hilt. Had a lot of questions and directed quite a few to this page. Best of luck to everyone else building this, and it's worth the effort. It's now hanging on my daughter's wall like a trophy.

How are people printing part 10/12/13/16? With supports? I cut the part in half in meshmixer and I'm seeing how that goes currently, but the thin layers were less than precise when I printed it just normally.
I'm also having an issue with the #4 part, hopefully i can find a way to get rid of that fill.
I'm printing on an xyz DaVinci, and scaling up 39% for a 3/4in EMT pipe. :)

How did your 10/12/13/16 parts come out? I'm struggling with mine. Not sure how I'll get them to print out decently.

I was able to find a site like Netfabb to clean up part 4, without filling in the back: https://makeprintable.com
You have to sign up, but it's still free.

Im able to slice all the parts save Part 4. Netfabb wants to fill in the back else the right side is floating.

Part 4. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1378161 you might have to do some re-scaling.

Reys Staff Part 4 Fix

I just noticed that myself. were you able to fix it?

This is really cool. Im going to Print one for an adult first then do a kids one after that. Ill show some photos once its done. Just going to throw this out there. I test printed a bunch of part 9 to find out what fits on a 3/4" pipe. Using Cura i had to scale it to 1.52 That seem to be the best fit for Part 9. Not sure about the rest of the parts yet.

Shouldn't part 4 be printed twice? It's unclear from the part number list but it looks like only half of the required part.

Hi,

first of all thank you for sharing this, I'm currently building one on a 3/4".
I did not reset any scale, just increased the existing one by 43%

I'm having trouble with Part #18 - when slicing it, half of the items arround are not coded, like they do not exist.
As I have absolutely no clue about 3D modelling I'm not sure on how to fix that.

Any clue?

As there was no reply I googled around and found a youtube instruction on how to repair with netfab basic app.
It is automatic and seems to have worked out :-)

Hey, its me again. I managed to scale all the parts using makerbot desktop but when i started to load them into slic3r i found that half of the files where broken. I went back to see if the originals were okay but they had the same problems. Some have inverted polys, which I can fix, but others just have parts that seem to be missing or aren't symmetrical.

Looking forward to making this sometime soon, but im a little confused on the scaling. to get it to fit the 3/4" pipe do you scale the parts down to 100% and then up to 135%? And if so how would I go about doing the scale down number wise.

If you are building in Makerware, import the file and reset the scale. This sets it to 100%. You can then scale up to 135% from there.

This is mainly if you are using the Thing files, because they were saved at the 110% scale for the 1/2" pipe.

Im not using makerware, I have a flashforge machine and run slicer to make all my x3g files.

If you don't mind me asking how tall is your daughter? My sister is on the shorter side so I would like to know if I have to scale down. You can PM if you want.

My daughter is 45" tall, so I made her staff at a few inches shy of 5'

Thanks we are at 38" right now, but were shooting for Halloween 2016 so maybe she'll grow into it.
