Just a quick 2-day project. Not sure if I’ll publish these. While I think the proportions are pretty close, the overall size was a total guess. If anyone has some actual dimensions, I’ll gladly post the files…
Yeah – so it’s been two years since I finished the cockpit sidewalls – and now, as promised, the rear wall is finished! Here’s a link to the GrabCAD project!
Just got these polyjet printed and added a single coat of white primer. No sanding yet.
This is the ANH 5′ gun printed at half scale. It was printed in six pieces and includes hollows for 1/16″ steel rods inside the barrels and the articulation points.
I did this as a test print to figure out my tolerances for snap fits and such.
A little mock-up to test targeting the quad cannon from the Millennium Falcon.
I used Unity3D to calculate the spherical aiming model, and then I derived the servo values from there which are passed to an Arduino to control the servos. Pew, pew!
Finally! I can move past this part. I hope this is one of the harder parts I’ll have to model.
