    What printer are you using for this? Are the materials cost effective?

    Hi Ralfskunk I'm using a UP2 printer its defo cost effective if you get a good deal on your ABS you can pick up 3 reels of 1kg ABS for around $100 on ebay the process takes about 2 reels, the only thing is its time consuming i think it took around 2 days non stop printing.

    quick update on the stock I've layered it to look like a wood piece that has been painted several times I have also used glue for texture, now it just needs masking and dusting with black and rusty browns,

    Nice job, it's going great, although that last picture looks like Luke's gotten at Boba's blaster again.

    Now I am trying to make the bracket that holds the stock to the butt in aluminum as the 3d printed one doesn't feel strong and could be a week point,
    however I am at the point now where i feel like trowing it all in a fire and doing the cremation scene from ROTJ!!!!!!!!!!

    I am using 4 programs just to convert my CAD image to a Gcode, if anyone knows any better methods of converting a sketch up file to geode on a MAC I would be extremely grateful

    Hi!
    I study architecture here in Chile and they have a laser printer at my university, I don't know if it works like that tho.
    which files are you sending to the printer?
    would you be willing to share your files?
    thanx!
