Yet another 3D printing project: Multi-piece Lightsaber

I got scolded at ICOK this year for not sharing more of my 3d printing stuff (@Linc).

So here's what I'm currently working on. It's a multi-piece lightsaber model that screws together. It's original intention by the creator (not me) is to be fitted with a SFX blade, but those are super expensive (like $150 for the cheap one), and I'm not in the mood for that.

So what I'll probably do, since the innards are pretty open, is rig it up for either a high-powered green LED or go nuts and rig it up with a laser pointer. Either way, there's tons of room inside.

I still have to do some cleanup on the threads, especially the end-cap, and there's a lot of support material clogging up the ridged part of the handle, but otherwise, it has come out quite nicely. I'll probably do some sanding and painting because lightsabers should look metal (and also METAL).
