I created this design after Blizzard contact me because they saw my work and they want to public them.
When they contact me I "only" create the base version of this gun without the electronics parts, but when they told me they want to feature my work, I decide to push even more the design and create the space to be able to put all the electronics parts and be able to program the effect of the light and even control them from my iPhone.
The 3D model was designed having in mind the print by color assembly, easy to print and be able to print all the parts in a normal size desktop 3D printer (20X20X20ish). I know how much time and frustrations can bring to post-process all the parts with sanding, filler and paint. To make more easy possible i added in the name of each file the color you should print them and with the help of some super glue you will be able to assemble the gun.
Already my first version of the guns was booming on the internet people like the "3D Printing Nerd " & "Barnacules" two big youtuber in the community of 3D printing decide to print the original gun without the Electronics and and i was tagged all over the internet with people printing one, and people really enjoy how the gun was printing and put together (And yes a lot of people was trying to sell the 3d printed version on etsy too...).
I will put here anyway a list of all the components that i used:
