3D-Printed Lightsaber

Sean Charlesworth, a 3D-printing fanatic, decided to combine his love of the technology with Star Wars. This amazing lightsaber was created using the same method as the original prop makers: sticking together old camera parts together. “I have a box of this cool stuff. I started picking out cool part and put them together until they started resembling a lightsaber, and I wanted something really beefy looking. These were subsequently duplicated, scaled down or modified through 3D printing to create a lightsaber. As a result, the hilt was actually based on the shell of an old camera motor, an eyepiece mechanism parts and some old lenses. Part of a hard drive also inspired him,” said Charlesworth.
