A 3D Printable AEP7 Laser Pistol (Fallout)





Introduction: A 3D Printable AEP7 Laser Pistol (Fallout)

A fully 3D printable version of the AEP7 Laser Pistol from fallout 3 and New Vegas. It can be printed in around 30 hours and requires 1kg of material. It requires a lot of support and is challenging to print, but the pay-off is most certainly worth it.

All the files to build it can be found at my thingiverse page

It was painted using acrylic paint and weathered with a small paintbrush and black paint. The yellow tube is a piece of coax cable that I painted with yellow paint. All the decals are printed on ordinary paper, glued to the model, then weathered.

It has a working laser diode (else it wouldn't really be a laser pistol). It has a working trigger, functioning energy cells (in the form of 3 AA batteries) that can be reloaded and a potentiometer connected to the knob on the back.

Could you post a circuit diagram and the specific laser diode you used? Also would you be ok with me making and selling a modified version of these with kickback and sound fx?

No circuit diagram available, sorry. It is no more than a laser, a battery and a switch. If you want to make and sell them that is fine. Just abide by the rules of creative commons.

Ok thanks im guessing it wont be that hard to find a nice vissible diode.

make sure that you don't get sued by Bethesda :D

Is this printed in ABS or PLA?

I am trying to figure out the circutry for it. could anyone do a tutorial with the wiring?

So what are the dimensions for the biggest piece? Looking at 3d printers and don't want to get one too small.

was able to print all the bits on Printrbot simple metal with a build area of 150x150x150
