    Sooo gorgeous. This one's probably my favourite build of yours so far!

    I'm pretty sure that Adobe has a free 30-day trial for their software if you'd like to make them yourself. Learning the very basics of vector drawing software is not too hard (I just did it the other...

    Did some more work on the chassis. Still a work in progress, but it's coming along nicely!

    Yes, just drilling a hole right through the silver part of the button thumb screw. IIRC the threads are 10-32 so that should be plenty large to have a hole drilled through and still be strong enough.

    The powder coating was done by TCSS, yeah. I'm far too much of a noob to try doing it myself.

    The recently released NBv4 and PRIZM v5 both support Neopixel blades, and that functionality will probably arrive on the other boards in the near future :)

    I wouldn't expect to see complete blades, as the amount of time and effort required to make one is through the roof. I would however love to see parts for these sold in the store such as plugs and...

    I would think that you should be able to drill a hole through the threads, and use a rivet as a kind of plunger to push a tactile switch in the hilt. I've never actually seen this done before on a...

    Just send your request to Tim first and work out the details, then you can order the sleeve material and the service that he quotes.

    Diagram looks good.



    You've got it exactly right. Although I honestly don't see too much of an advantage by adding a fourth white die; I would just stick to three.

    The power-on indicator pad you're using is a regulated 3.3V pad (not 7.4V), so you'll want to use that as your source voltage for your switch LED :)

    Are you using your batteries in a 3.7V parallel configuration with the CF hack or in a 7.4V series configuration? If you're using 7.4V, your resistor values are way off, and even if you're using a...

    It's possible that you may not be able to suck enough juice out of a 14500 to fully power all of the components of your saber. The maximum continuous discharge rates of 14500 cells can be a little...

    Yes it's possible to do a separated battery pack. I'm using one in my saber. You need two of the exact same model of unprotected cell, and a 7.4V battery PCB. It's preferable to get cells with...

    If you do some rough math you will find that the maximum continuous discharge rate of the 14500 cells is not high enough to power three LEDs at once, even with the SMPS regulators on the CF and CEx....

    Wow, that's definitely too thin. Glad you found a good solution :)

    Mine fits about two threads of an 8-32 screw so I think I should be fine.
