Most of the chassis parts needed for our chassis are available at The Saber Armory.
Local hobby stores or online store (as well as eBay) are a good source for parts.
You can also be inventive and add any custom parts, wire mesh, paint job or else to your chassis to give it an unique look!
⇒ Brass or copper rods – 1.5mm max OD sold at The Saber Armory

4– Electronic components and blades:
Saber electronic components are basically more or less similar from one saber to another. You’ll need a main Led, a Battery, a recharge port, one or two switches, a soundboard, accent leds, a speaker and wires. Then the blade is the last part of your saber, they are usually made from PolyCarbonate tubes + tip.
Again, you can find most of what you’ll need at The Saber Armory. Local electronic shops or online stores like Digikey are also a good source.
⇒ Soundboard, the “heart” of our sabers is the Soundboard, here are the 2 major Soundboard producers:
Plecter Labs – from the entry level Nano Biscotte or Prizm 5.1 (recommended).
Naigon Elelctronic Creations – from the entry level Spark 2 to the high end I2.

⇒ Main Led, Tri-Cree XPE-2 recommended
⇒ Switch is probided with the hilt. Aux switch can be added (installer choice).

⇒ Speaker, 20mm Speaker
⇒ Accent Leds, 5mm led for the Crystal Chamber recommended on the master chassis (if RGB, read your soundboard manual to select between common anode or common cathode led), 3mm leds for the others.
⇒ Wires, 30awg wires are mandatory on most our 3D Printed chassis. We are buying them from this eBay seller.

(step by step)
Note 1: 30awg wires and smaller are mandatory for this install (30awg for main wires and 32awg for accent leds and switches are highly recommended)…. Oh and definitely use colored wires to make your life easier.
Note 2: These instructions will not cover how to wire the soundboard, make sure to learn how to by reading the manual.
Note 3: This instructions will details the install as much as possible. GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made by DIYers tho. Thanks!
