3D Printing Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster from Star Wars!
Designed by Alan Stanford, this rendition of the famous DL-44 blaster wielded by Han Solo in the Star Wars universe is a perfect project for those just starting out in the world of 3D printing. It offers enough complexity to challenge your overall skills and force you to learn the ins and outs of your printer, but is rewarding in the ease of its final construction. I’ll show you how to paint it in a later article using acrylic paints and a foam brush.
The DL-44 heavy blaster pistol, also known more simply as a DL-44 blaster pistol, was a type of heavy blaster pistol produced by BlasTech Industries that was used during the years of the Galactic Republic and the Age of the Empire. It was considered one of the most powerful blaster pistols in the galaxy, delivering massive damage at close range; however, it overheated quickly.
This print can be accomplished on almost any printer, as the pieces can be laid out according to your printer size. If you’re really new to 3D-printing, I strongly recommend taking the slower route and printing each piece individually. This allows you a good amount of security if you get something wrong. If, however, you’re feeling confident and have a larger print bed like the one on the Anycubic Kobra Plus, you can print the whole assembly in one go.
