Dear all,

I recently made a 3D model of the famous silver taboo blaster Padmé is using, and 3D printed one for an event. However, in order to get it the most accurate possible before sharing it publicly and print the two friends of mine already ordered me, would any of you have the exact measurements of it ? Or at least a good estimation of one of it's measurements (main barrel diameter would be perfect !).

I think I got the proportions quite good, considering that the shape seems to change a bit depending on the version (long or short barrel, once 3D printed you can do both !). I just need to adjust some parts to get them better fitting after printing and remove an inside part (the first idea was to make something able to be short and long barrel with the same blaster, just needing to screw/twist the barrel in lock position, but it is not strong and resistant enough to survive, so I forgot the idea !)


Thank you in advance for your help,
Here is a small pic of the model !

Hi. I gave the topic a title, so people knows what it's about.

Good luck with the project. Hopefully someone can give you some measurements.

I'm always interested to see Naboo blasters. The Rubies blasters a while ago may have been a bit big. I think the originals were really tiny, as the actresses were pretty small, but we're not all that small.

Well, I want for a 4.5cm diameter, a bit larger than the previous one I printed as it felt really small in my hand and not really confortable that the handle is not long enough.

But maybe it's normal... after all, prequels props are not meant to be confortable in combat or easy to shoot with ! ahah

This is mine, but I think you may have meant the diameter of the barrel?

You can get an idea of the scale in these pics:
