I was wondering if anyone has scanned a sledgefire. Not the shells it uses, but the blaster shell itself, if not, would anyone who has a 3d scanner be willing to scan the shell for me. I can send the sledgefire. Pm me if youd be willing to

Effective 3d scanning is an expensive and complex process. I've handled output from $60,000 machines that probably still wouldn't be sufficient for our uses without significant cleanup afterwards. There are only a very few NIC members capable of doing this, you're better off asking them directly.

I really don't know why you'd need to. You can currently still buy Sledgefires on Amazon.

I need a translucent shell. Im trying to do an led job that requires more then just cutting a slot and gluing some sanded polycarb.
Who do I ask?
Edit: I just realized I could try resin casting. I still would like to get a sledgefire scanned, because it isnt as imprecise as casting

I think Lucian is the scanning dude. Depending on what you do with the scans, casting can be far more precise. If printing off of FDM, casting will be more precise. If printing off a 300k Polyjet printer... casting is maybe slightly less precise.

Regardless of the printer, you aren't going to get the optical clarity achievable with casting without significant post processing. The best I've seen is Polyjet pseduo-acrylic painted with a thick clear coat to remove layer effects. I've seen some pretty clear DLP/SLA prints (after similar post processing) as well but I'm less knowledgeable about that tech.
