Update 31 Oct Post 42 Both guns are now live to download on thingiverse as multiple files. Please see post 42 for details. Update 22 Oct. Post 14 The Single barrel weapon has been revised to a modular system and increased in size. It offers two alternate barrels. Original Post follows: After my brief play with shapeways prints a while back https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/a-play-with-prints-wip.1153188/ I decided to go ahead and purchase a 3D printer recently. After making some light shades at home and a few odds and ends I figured it was time to do something Transformery. Thinking about what was most needed in my collection I figured TR Fort Max desperately required his signature weapons. More so for the silhouette in battle station and city modes. Given the recent reveal of his nemesis in production as a Titan, it seems pretty appropriate also. I don’t have the G1 toy so references consisted of random photos from the ‘net. The guns are probably oversized by comparison, but given Metroplex’s monstrous weapons, I figured that was OK. The first test print of the rifle however was too large and looked comically big in battle station/spaceship mode, so other sizes were trialed for best fit. The pivot connection between handles and guns are pretty basic, made to snap in securely. However they can be detached with force. I tested a clip system, but eventually dropped it to minimise small printed parts. I’m not sure how it will hold up to wear over time and need to revise the hook angle on the rifle, as the print struggled there. The twin barrels are printed separately and slot in easily, this was just done for print redundancy as they were symmetrical. Perhaps the twin-barrel weapon is also too big for the alt-modes. All barrels are hollow to facilitate effects parts at a later date. The tower mounting pegs were increased slightly above a 5mm diameter for firmness in the tower ports, considering the weight of each weapon. I have some Royal Blue spray which is a closer approximation to Max's colour, but not perfect. I'll give a go in the next couple of days. Thanks for reading.
