Obi Wan Kenobi Lightsaber - Internal chassis Printed

Now that the chassis is printed I'm pretty pleased with the print. There are a few details I will need to change, and now that I have discussed some of the design features with a friend I will tweak them also.

The back channel of the print allows for wiring

The battery clips in nicely to the print and holds it well, just need to tweak the alignment. 

The spark 2 fits, some modification for ease of wiring is needed. 

I will need to drill out part of the grenade section to allow for the the charge port under the rear hole in the clamp section, I might change to a smaller recharge port also.

Already on to the upgrades . . . .

Obi Wan Kenobi Lightsaber - Internal chassis

Progress continues on the Obi Wan Kenobi lightsaber.
I have finished the design of the 3d printed part to hold the battery, Spark 2, and recharge port.  This part will connect to the first post about the Obi Wan lightsaber which will hold the crystal chamber. I'm looking forward to seeing it printed out.

The green battery is an 18650 and the red card is the Spark 2 which controls all the LED's for the blade and accents for the chamber, and the sound when you move the saber.
The hole in the above picture is for the 2.1mm recharge port.

This part will connect to the above to make the crystal chamber and hold the speaker.
