Hey guys,

I just wanted to showcase my 3D printed unlicensed nuclear accelerator. I lost count of the hours but it took about 8 months from start to finish.

You did a really good job! Did you make your own files or use someone else's?

Wow, that looks incredible. Exactly what parts here are 3D printed and what is not? Obviously the tubing and electronics are not lol, what about the shell though, is that fiberglass? And like NotSabbat asked, what files did you use?

Pretty much everything is 3D printed except the tubing and brass fittings and some small metal parts. The motherboard is plexiglas.

I'll link the files below.

That's awesome man, thanks. I've got a few more questions if you don't mind.

What method did you use to get rid of the layer lines? How long did it take you? What was the total cost of the pack?

Filler primer, Bondo glazing and spot putty and a lot of sanding is how you get rid of the lines ;)

That said, I lost count of the hours. It took a lot of time to get the parts as smooth as I wanted.

There is about 50$ worth of PETG filament, maybe around 300$ on electronics and random parts, 200$ of putty, primer and paint... Overall I think I spent around 550-650$ Canadian on the pack.

And it took me around 14 months from start to finish on everything.
