Boba Fett v3.0 – 3D Print – EE-3, Barrel Basic Prep, Continued

Making A Hole…

Since I’m going to add electronics into this piece, it’s time to drill out the part where the flare shell would be inserted…

All of that lowest part needs to be removed…

I started by using a small paddle bit to drill a pilot hole.

Pilot hole drilled…

I was then going to use a bigger paddle bit that was almost the size of the opening…

But it jumped around too much, so I switched over to a hole saw using my drill. This was much easier to control…

The larger hole completed. The center part is still attached to the interior supports. In hind site, I probably should have printed this piece without interior supports…

End part removed, exposing the interior supports.

I then used the hole saw to keep cutting down deeper into the interior support structure so it was easier to remove. This too me down to the point where the two barrel pieces were glued together.

Once I cut through that area, I could see the interior supports for the long part of the barrel.
