Finally got my hands on Part #53 from the SeaLab III kit. Also some other random bits – Ferrari 312B Headers, LS Morgan parts…
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.
Get it here on GrabCAD.
Here 47 of the Aurora SeaLab III parts as were used on various Star Wars and Battlestar studio scale models.
