Are these going to be set up for inclusion of a Crystal Chamber?
I believe in the Run thread it was mentioned that there would be very little room. But from that render, it looks like they might be able to squeeze one in to the shoto.
I don't think there are any plans to include one in the 3D printed chassis, but I bet that with a Nano Biscotte or Crystal Shard it would be very easy to fit a crystal chamber in there. With a PRIZM, Spark 2, or Igniter 2 it would be doable, but with a 7.4V pack and PC/CF it would be pretty much impossible. I have plans to do a custom reveal chassis with a 3.7V "hacked" CF, which will allow me to fit the chamber in.

Rick, can you confirm for me if I am reading this right? As an "all in one" chassis, does that mean that the entire chassis, including switches and led assembly, speaker and everything will slide in and out of the hilt as one piece? That's what it looks like from the pictures but I just want to make sure I am looking at it right.
Ryo's chassis parts are ordered through Shapeways.com, separate from the hilt. Usually they are made out of nylon. As for battle-worthy, oh heck yeah. Just about every saber I've built in the last year has one and they get banged around a bit by the kids.

Wondering if you could share an update! Insinuating that you had time to work with this. I know making lightsaber components of any kind is a hobby profession than a real one. Everyone would understand if life got in the way, if that were the case.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

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.
