hello everyone! I just bought all of the crap from Wal-Mart to start building a blaster. The stock was a piece of wood that I had cut at school in the 3D drill.

A 3D drill is a big big drill that takes objects in 3D on the computer and machines them into whatever object it can make. It can only go 2D though, since it can not pivot.

I just stick the piece of wood in, and when I had the object in CAD I just had it cut the piece of wood using a drill bit. I sanded the edges so it would be rounded.

...If you used a CAD Drawing to cut something in wood...I *think* you may mean CNC Router...not 3D drill.
Very cool, can't wait to see more progress pics.

Meh, I don't know what the thing is called. We call it the "Big Ass Murder Machine," because we stick rulers in there and other random crap just to destroy. But when our superiors are around we call it the 3D drill ;).

Hi, I have done the same thing...........and I think it´s a good way to make a cheap and good looking blaster....
That's a nice blaster! But yours is the ROTJ style, it's not too different, the scope is mounted differently and the barrel is different. The ROTJ has a cooler design, but I don't want to go too far outside of my costume style.

That's awesome!!!!!!! I'm going out right now to get the parts.
I hope my tutorial helps! Are you going to make the ROTJ or ESB style? This blaster progress should help you either way you choose.

Unfortunately the toy gun I bought came with a partner, I don't know what to do with the other. I have enough parts to make a second blaster, I might build one and sell the blaster cheap in the Cargo Hold. I'm not in this hobby to make money :) So you might see a "Buy it now" $30 blaster in the cargo hold in time.

With some creative trimming of an x-acto, here it is. I do need to re-add the bottom part which I cut off, the sight on the back, the depression in the part I cut out, and the little knob thing infront of the trigger. There are some parts that I need to fill in, some parts were too thin for the thickness I was aiming at. I also plan to fill in the barrel a little with the bondo. I don't want people do see a toy gun when they look down the barrel!
