This saber has long since reached it's new owner and I'm just finally getting around to posting some glams of it. Why no fancy pics of it lit up? Well, because it was late at night when I took the pics and I did not want to wake anybody up. That's how loud these babies are. Anyways, my apologies for that, however we have all seen them lit up before. Like with all color mixing sabers they can do pretty much every color in the rainbow. Here we are with some close ups of the install so you guys know Ol' Obi-Shane is staying busy and not cooped up in his hut somewhere in the middle of the dune sea doing nothing.
This hit was a lot of fun to work on as it was the Protoype for the TFU2 run Aaron did. There are small variations to it and differences here or there that make it special. I can't take credit for the weathering, the only thing I did that is visible when the saber is closed is the machined buttons that have been popular lately with customer requests. Same setup as my previous TFU, color matching crystal chamber ( or idle, or cycle, it can do it all!)
Thanks for Looking. I'll upload a video of it soon ( I was using it to do some config settings for another TFU ).
I heard you guys like videos, I have a boring video for you I shot when I was sending messages to Daddy SWOLO .

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
