3D Printing

This guide is a work in progress. Advanced users can use the files and diagrams as a blueprint for building. Step-by-step instructions will be added over time.

This guide is a work in progress for printing and assembling the Overwatch Lucio blaster as well as connecting the electronics. Part 1 and Part 2 of this series show how the circuits are created.

Get ready to go into 3D printing production -- there are 42 parts to print for Lucio's blaster! Download the model files here.

You can choose to print in a single color and then prime and paint your parts, or use colored filaments as seen here. The frontDiffuser part should be printed in a translucent natural filament in order to allow the LEDs to glow through with some diffusion.

These are the filament colors I used, printing on a combination of an Ultimaker 2+ and a Printrbot Metal Simple:

The three largest parts were printed on a BCN3D Sigma printer in gray and black PLA/PHA.

All of the parts can be printed on a typical 3D printer's approximately 8"x8"x8" bed with the exceptions of the frontFace, frontBase, and frontCrown parts, which are quite large, so you may need to slice these into sections for re-assembly  later

After printing the parts and cleaning up the supports, you can dry fit them to make sure everything will go together smoothly.
