Build thread for using a 3D printer to create a movie prop replica from Spaceballs #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Lodestar Pendant

Designer and movie prop replicator Todd Blatt shared a simple step-by-step build thread for the Lodestar pendant from Spaceballs:

I’ve had these for a bit but I wanted to post this build thread. I also made the Schwartz ring from Spaceballs, but here’s a detailed build of the pendant than Lonestar wears in the film.  I started with the screen capped reference image.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
