Husky68 3D Printed E-11

Recommended Posts

  A friend is being generous with his time and 3D printer ( prusa ) and will be printing an ANH E-11 Blaster for me.  Files are all from the internet and the end result may or may not be worthy of higher levels.  It will be printed in PLA and using Dichloromethane to smooth and weld pieces together

 

Rayabear original source of files.  There is some details lacking,  noteably the knarl on grip,  that can be replaced with other posts on the same website.  In the comments he mentions refining the models but did not upload those improvements.  Slic3r had some issues with faces and sometimes needed to go with an alternate source.

  This is the box of printed parts,  only scope and power rails remain to be painted.  The spring I will make with a hanger or look for other suitable alternatives.

A bit late in the printing,  but I found this thread today which does have some files to consider for possible improved accuracy.

Also from a comment and internet search I just found this site with what looks to be accurate files from Raymond Herbert (Rayabear from above thingiverse).

Might have to show some appreciation and use the support me function of this website at the end of my project.

Got a delivery today of Methylene Chloride ( dichloro methane ), also known as ジクロロメタン, which is to PLA as acetone is to ABS.  So this should serve both to smooth out parts and chemically weld them together.  Of course tests will be done on scraps before anything is applied to the good parts.

Cool, I'd be interested to see the results as have considered trying this myself on a PLA print. Hopefully you can maintain good detail, so please post up photos once you have experimented.

 I've got my box of PLA plastic and taken the time to lay it all out and cut away some of the supports.  Thankfully from one of the links mentioned previously I found a build instruction PDF that helps both to identify and walk through the process of assembly.  Although some of my parts are slightly different the guide will be enough to get started.  I'll return to my TK build,  blaster not required for membership,  but will try to test Methylene Chloride for smoothing and welding on junk pieces soon.
