A custom cutaway lightsaber that I designed in conjunction with Formlabs and as seen on Adam Savage's Tested:
http://bit.ly/2h3FD39

This aggressive-looking lightsaber hilt was custom designed and 3D printed in high-detail resin, including a rubber-like material used for the grip pads and on/off button. The hilt is presented unpainted as to fully show off the 3D printed parts. Details include:

- Removable magnetic body panels
- High-intensity LED to light up the crystals
- Rechargeable battery and USB charger hidden in the base - runtime is approximately 7 hours
- Rubber-like grip pads and on/off switch (extra switch button included)
- Highly detailed parts including knurling, mesh, fins and mechanical parts
- Like the original props, many elements are based on real parts such as motion picture camera parts, electrical connectors, etc
- Care and use instructions are included

Please see the reveal video on Tested to see it in action:

IMPORTANT NOTES:
- This is a unique and DELICATE display piece printed in acrylic-like resin - it is not meant for combat or rough handling - many parts such as the cooling fins are very fragile
- 3D printed parts are UV sensitive and should not be displayed in direct sunlight
- Light function only - NO sound
- Crystals are translucent - color determined by LED
- An extra rubber on/off button is included as the flex material is new and longevity is not guaranteed.
- Lightsaber can be painted by the buyer like any model kit

Currently ships to U.S. and Canada only due to restrictions on shipping LiPo batteries.

Frequently asked questions about CharlesworthDynamics

3D printed objects are made by 'slicing' a digital model into many thin layers. These slices are sent to a printer that 'draws' each layer by extruding plastic through a hot nozzle.
There are a lot of different materials available now but the two most common are ABS (LEGO plastic) and PLA (biodegradable plastic) which is what Charlesworth Dynamics uses.
While the 3D prints aren't hazardous, they are not food, dishwasher or microwave safe.
They are very strong, but will break just like any plastic item if abused.
3D prints are very strong if printed properly but will break just like any plastic item if abused. Since the object is printed in layers, they will have a slightly ridged texture to them unlike a injection molded object. There is usually a 'zipper' which is a slight vertical seam that indicates where each new layer starts. They may have slight defects or blemishes and the bottom which adheres to the print bed may have some discoloration. Kit pieces may need minor clean up or trimming to fit together. This is typical of most 3D prints.
Yes, you can sand and paint 3D prints like a normal plastic model. You can even use products like Bondo Glazing and Spotting putty to minimize and smooth the 3D printed texture. Make sure to use a plastic-friendly paint.
I include a link for assembly instructions with your shipping notification, but here's a link for all assembly guides:

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or recommendations.
On occasion I will also build items out of 'real' parts and hardware - typically I use vintage Film & TV equipment parts. I have made lamps out of old lenses and jewelry out of old camera parts. Keep in mind that these are all used parts and will show their wear and tear and age - it's part of their charm.
