Back in the early 2000's I bought a metal Obi Wan TPM lightsaber replica that was intended to have electronics installed but never got around to it. I always liked how accurate to the movie prop it seemed to be, so my goal here was to copy it into a printable version. I've also been working on making a full lightsaber collection from the movies using CaseStudyno8's excellent designs, and this was the only one I had left to make.
I used CaseStudyno8's designs as the basis, reworking some parts to match the reference prop. Not perfect but looks pretty close.
All parts should open oriented the way they were printed. To minimize supports, the outer handle has an optional version broken into 2 pieces using small tabs for connection alignment (these are fragile so I've included the combined version as alternate). The emitter outer has fragile pillars so be careful when connecting to the emitter.
Support everywhere is required for:
handle outer upper/handle outer
Thanks again to CaseStudyno8 for making my collection awesome!
The filament used was CC3D Silk Silver sold on Amazon. It has become my new favorite because it has a reflective quality that mimics the shine of real metal. Printing slow yields amazing results, as seen in my photos.
