Retro Raygun: Body

Made by
3D printed in white nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description

This is the body file -- one of several necessary files -- to assemble a complete retro-style raygun with working trigger. It was printed once; the major parts here in WSF, some small parts in pink SLA and a few high-wear parts like the trigger CNC'd out of 6061 aluminium. Cleaned up with sandpaper and sealed with zap-a-gap and painted with Krylon Select chrome. 

All the parts screw on to the right half of the clamshell, here, to simplify final assembly; the grip, fin, trigger, and trigger guard screw directly in, the nozzle/dish assembly is inserted into the front, clamping the insulator donuts in place. There are also cutouts for the Cree LED, surface transducer, sound board, dial potentiometer, trigger switch, and main circuit board.

The flags from the Shapeways automatic check are for some knife edges, which are not important to the model. There are some small issues; the cut-out for the grip is 1/8" too deep on one side, and there is a bit of extraneous material on the other side of that pocket that needs to be trimmed away. The top side of the speaker holder is too tight as well, but really, the surface transducer the internal compartments were designed around didn't work as well as I was hoping and should be swapped out for a conventional speaker.

(Other internal circuitry modifications would be tightening the pockets for the amplfier and controller boards, and adding a support for the "Cree" LED. For printing purposes, would also include the potentiometer strap instead of doing that in metal as was done on the original).

For plastic use, screws can be driven into the pre-drilled holes (some may need to be widened slightly, and locator holes for the trigger switch were intentionally left off for fine positioning). I chose to assemble with brass thread inserts, which took some minor modification as the CAD files only accounted for clearance for self-tapped holes.

Files not yet uploaded; the side swooshes, the "planet" that mirrors the selector dial, trigger, trigger guard, and energy cell assembly.
