This is the normal version, there's also a complex version made out of more than 14 pieces! Find it here:

This is the normal version which is made out of only a few pieces. Jacky, aka Valcrow, created this model for Ultimaker and wrote a guest blog about it. It's interesting to read because it shows the differences between the simple and complex version, tips & tricks on how to print it and also how to assemble it. Read it here:

Update! New blog written by Jacky about painting 3D prints, including a sweet video tutorial:

Hi Marc,

Unfortunately, this was not created in solidworks so there are no solid modelling 'source' files. You can use the STL files as reference however.

Hi, we're a group of students from Spain, and we would like to use your lightsaber design for a SolidWorks project. If you could provide us the plans of the different pieces of the lightsaber you would help us a lot. Thanks! Awesome design.

Great fit, great model. Been 3D printing for years - this is one of my favourite designs!

Is it possible to print at 0.2? I wasn't able to make things fit at that resolution

Printed well and all went together nicely, If doing again would have done more perimeters as the connector at top snapped which is my own fault.
E24bb734e53c2d635f506fdf67b2364b?default=blank&size=40pierce commented ago

Good point, I was only doing 2 perimeters with a .4 nozzle, for next part ill bump this back up to 3 or more

29de1859563f39afab60d44efb095a77?default=blank&size=40Valcrow commented ago

You could increase number of perimeters (shell thickness) instead of infill. That will give it more strength than more infill and more efficient on materials.

E24bb734e53c2d635f506fdf67b2364b?default=blank&size=40pierce commented ago

What infil are people using for this?

Just put the grip and emitter together and snapped off the end by mistake, only at 15% infil wonder if I should have gone higher or just been less clumsy!

P.S. amazing model, looks very good quality
