Accurate E-11 Model with Light/Sound for 3D printing

Recommended Posts

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4087124

 

Hi all, I just spent about 100 hours modeling an E-11 for 3D printing and giving it away for free.

 

I made it as true to life as I could as well as adding in support for light and sound elements.

 

It has:

 

- Working trigger/selector with light and sound changes by mode

- Light up scope

- Addressable LED fire effects with focusing LED on front, range is about 10M with indoor light, not a laser so eye safe

- 3D printed spring with cycling bolt

- Removable magazine with battery inside

- Removable rear cap with D ring mount

- 3W speaker, as big as I could get to be heard in noisy areas

- Plays the imperial march when you hold the selector for 3sec

- discreet wiring guides, no wires are visible or in the way

- Stock folds out and locks in place

- All major parts are removable via snap lock or screws, so you can upgrade or replace anything without a full rebuild (and get at the electronics)

 

I'm trying to improve the model as much as possible so feedback and suggestions would be appreciated. If anyone wants a custom TK number on the Hengstler let me know and I'll model one for you.

I commend you for all your hard work and attention to detail! It is obvious to see your passion for things Star Wars!

Impressive, most impressive.

Oh, and welcome to the FISD, Chris. :salute:

Looking forward to see one of these in a build thread here...

I'm going to do up a V3 one next week, it's already printed in a box. I'm considering doing a video on assembly and wiring depending on how busy work gets, but a 'how to' pic build guide is coming at least. 

Here's:
- the vector image of the sight. To make it I printed this on some transparency and airbrushed one side red lightly
- the Arduino code, it's a WIP but it does work. I have another direct drive version for the front emitter rather than the neo-pixel, I started off with a 3W LED, but I think neo-pixels are more ubiquitous. If you want the 3W version let me know.

- The circuit diagram. I think I have everything labeled. Everything with gnd can be connected together as well as +5v. The 7805T is a step down from a 7.4Lipo, but you can just as easily step up from 3.7. V4 will have that as well as USB direct charging.

 

edit: in the diagram ignore 'imp btn', that's from V1 where the imperial march had it's own button, it's now a long press of the fire select, and the fire LED is 3 pin now for the addressable light strip. I'll post a detailed parts list and guide next week.

Hey Chris what happend to your fils. Wanted to download them but couldnt find them anymore on Thingiverse.

I'm in the same boat, too. I saw them when they were first released, but unfortunately didn't download them at the time.
