With apologies for the delay, here's my long overdue Instructions on how to assemble the Laser Pointer Ray-Gun, you can buy the Vector drawing plans, to have it made...
On a CNC Laser-Cutter!
This is how it looks like, on Salmon translucent Acrylic, but the Photos of making it are, well, of translucent parts, that may confuse you, to the point of not knowing what-goes-where...
So the Photos will be of the far less glamorous, but more visible, MDF version.
Newsflash! You can buy the Ray-Gun's T-Shirt, too, now!
Also, you can now buy the 3D printed, 3 piece only, version:
Step 1: The Piece Set
Have a Rubber Band there, too, that will be the Spring for the Trigger.
Step 2: The Muzzle, First Step
Connect it to the front round part, those are arranged from A to F, front to back.
You start, then, by connecting part A to part 12.
Step 3: All Done, There
Step 4: Now, for the Other Side Parts...
Step 5: These Set All the Others
The assembled Muzzle has to be all done right, if you make one mistake, and one side part, say, part 1 is not connected to all round parts, A to F, ALWAYS on position 1, but for example, on position 2, it won't assemble right!
Step 6: Muzzle Done, Now the Handle!
Step 7: The Trickiest Part of Them All...
This part, is plugged on the Handle top part, but remember, the 2 BACK slots of the handle fit into the 2 back holes of that little rascal, AND, it's meant to fit it's front part, BEHIND the Handle's 2 pairs of front slots.
be sure you've done it right, before you glue it...
You can tell them apart, because the tricky part still has the White Paper glued on top.
Step 8: Trigger, Muzzle, and Handle Meet
Step 9: The Box
The Laser (or LED, in this case), will be glued to the top part, upside down, so as to have the switch being hit by the top of the Trigger's hook
So, the LED or Laser Pointer will be switched on and off, that way.
Here you go, you've assembled the Laser Pointer, congratulations!!!
