DLT-19 3D Model

Recommended Posts

Ok it has been 10 years since I did the 2D drawing for this blaster, I figure it is about time I converted them to 3D. These drawings have developed a life of their own, I am finding them all over the net.  But I can only remember sending the CAD file to 3 people and those files were never posted by me.  Just amazing.

 

Here is what I have so far.  The plan is to use 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" PVC pipe for the barrel sections, the rest will be solid models that hopefully can be printed out.  I confess I do not own a 3D printer so while the models will be water tight solids, they may need some work to get them to print properly.  

 

The STL files will be posted along with hole pattern templates for the PVC barrel sections.

 

As always let me know what you think.

Here is the link to STL File for the part I have so far.  if you have any issues please let me know.  If you print these post pics.

Great work and thank you for the OLD 2d drawings they helped me a lot building my gun

I promise they will get posted.  I am still tweaking them.  My CAD and 3D skills are a little rusty and I keep finding things I missed.

 

The question I have is what format would be best STL or DXF?

That's funny, I used your drawings among others for reference when I built mine. Thank You for posting!

Here is an update.  May not look like much, but there are more than a few hours of tweaking.  The bi-pod mount (gray part) is surprisingly complex, at least for my feeble skills.

Having a 3D model to print these from will be a great asset to the Empire! I would love to try putting one of these together if you get the chance to complete the files. Keep up the super work. Super talented!

I am using AutoCAD 2012. 

 

In all my research I have never seen it as two pieces, but my thought is that two pieces would be easier to print, especially on the smaller hobby printers.

Ok I have finished tweaking and I'm getting ready to post these parts, figured I'd do it an batches so I can get feedback on their usability. 

 

So I need to know from all you 3D printer folks should the parts be put in to separate STL files or just lumped into one big file?

Last time I got files from here, they were all lumped together. It was the files for the F-11D blaster and I don't think it was a problem. My friend was the one who printed and just did part by part in order.

Ok figured it out, the first post has been updated with a link to the first batch of parts.  

 

As always liked to here what you all think.

 

Post pics of your prints!

Thanks!  Do you happen to know the proper scaling/sizing for the parts?  Everytime I load it into my slicing programs its tiny.

Scale it up by 25.4
