So I have 2 Romans Inception hilts to build, one is for a customer the other is my own.
So I have currently made and had printed the battery holder. I designed it in 2 parts for the purpose of either using a single 18650 or a 7.4v 18500 twin stick. Having 2 parts is essential because of the nature of the way Roman has designed the hilt. It also means if you are only using a single battery you will save money and have the choice of where you want the battery placed if using a single. I have not finished the board and speaker holder yet as I will be fitting a cf&pc into the 2 sabers, this means I will have to do some machining as the boards will not slide through the small access in the rear handle/booster section.
Sorry about the poor video
If there is enough interest I'll make the parts available for Shapeways.
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.

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.
