Introduction: Make Bouncing Deathstars With 3D Printing and Homemade Sugru!


Parts needed are:
Access to a 3D printer.
Corn starch
Clear silicone caulk
Vaseline

Step 1: Download and 3D Print the Mold.

Dowload the file from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:563586 and print it.

Step 2: Make Your Homemade Sugru.

I used a 49-49% volume mixture of corn starch and clear silicone caulk
and added some water, lets say 2% at the end.
You can follow the steps in the https://m.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Your-Own-Sugru-Substitute/ instructable.

Step 3: Final Step

Take some vaseline and apply to the inside of the mold.
Shape the homemade sugru into a ball slightly bigger then the mold, put it in and leave the mold closed under pressure for two hours. After the time has passed take the ball out and leave it somewhere to cure for a few more hours. And thats it, you now own a DIYS Deathstar.

That's very cool.

I do have a tip though. For your next ible you could just make a gif, that's easier and better for people who might not have acces to youtube.

Tnx, I'll make some gifs from now on.

cool project

Glad you like it!

Voted for this. It's a really cool project, and I hope it wins the fandom contest!

Thanks! here's a homemade minion for you.

Neat idea. How does the cannon indentation affect the bounce? My concern is that the (effectively) flat surface will either kill the bounce or send it off in random directions.

I still like it, though.

Well, it has an influance on the trajectory, but it's minimal.
