Qoute: The wavelength of 405nm is located near the ultraviolet (UV) end of the visible light spectrum where the human eye is less sensitive so the visibility of the violet beam will not be as high as green, blue or red lasers beams.

sounds good, I mean if I were to do the project I wouldnt buy one that expensive because simply put, not many people have enough extra money to purchase a real expensive model like that, but keep going, you obviously have dedication or you wouldn't have gotten even this far especially with the numbers gone. Also good work on the piece so far, looking really good. How are you going to be strengthening it? My friend while as judgemental as he is, has great ideas, (Potshot) filled his shotgun with foam and it worked great and had a good weight to it. He said he is going to make a picture tutorial on it soon. You should check it out when your finished pepping.

I was thinking of giving it a few good thick coats of resin and molding it a little into the nooks and crannys if all the details..after that ill have it cut down the middle/ventral to put the guts in.

Keep the good work going :) Looks like you will have a sweet weapon

when you finish. I shudder at the though of having to peice one of

these together without the edge IDs. Simply GREAT work
 

Jyoumon

Jr Member
yeah...but ive found that the edge IDs...would be a little tough anyway...there are so many small peices that even on the computer model the numbers blurr together into unreadable text unless your close to maximum zoom on a single edge >_<

I have...run into a bit of a problem >_>





umm...my laser is bigger than my work surface XD



So...im having to jury rig my board onto my desk to get it to hold while i glue it in place XD



...this might slow my progress .../ but in other news. ive decided to forgoe some of the more HIGHLY detailed areas of the gun that will be globbed down by resin and glass anyway, so this thing will still look Goood....just not SPECTACULAR .....>_>...



going back to working now...

There's a button that you can press on the top bar of pepakura, Check Corresponding Face (looks like a box with an arrow pointed to it) or hit Ctrl+K



This allows you to use the 2d window to see which edges align, and if you click on a piece it will isolate it in the 3d window. If you Ctrl+Click on multiple pieces, it will select them all and isolate them in the 3d window. I use this method for tracking my progress, and while I have numbers printed on my edges, I rarely actually use them.



Hope it helps :)
