2- Additional chassis parts:

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!
For the Sith Master chassis only, here is a list of parts needed to install it:
 1.5mm OD Brass rods (4x100mm, 2x110mm)

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 possible 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 to the high end Crystal Focus.
Naigon Elelctronic Creations – from the entry level Spark 2 to the high end I2.
Battery,
Master – Single 18650 (3.7v) or 2 x 18350 (7.4v)
Padawan – Single 18650 (3.7v) or 2 x 18650 (7.4v)
⇒ Recharge Port, 2.1mm port is used on this chassis (kill key included in the chassis kit).
 Battery charger, according to the battery voltage used.
 Main Led, Tri-Cree XPE-2 recommended
 Switches, tactile switches – follow instructions.
 Speaker, 28mm Speaker, bass or flat
 Accent Leds, 2 x 5mm led for the Sith Master Crystal Chamber recommended (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.
 Heat shrink tubing, to protect your solder joints.
 RICE port

 1″ OD blade or 7/8″ OD blade for the main blade, TBD for the crossguards blades.

Quick Install Guide:

Disclainer:
– These instructions will details the install procedure as much as possible. GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made by DIYers.
– Always wear protective gear when working on install (gloves, eye protection, …), GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible in case of accident.

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. make sure to test your install along the way! Making sure everything works after important steps is better than having to dismount everything cause something wasn’t wired properly.

Note 4: Recharge port wiring reminder:

MULTIBOARDS ADAPTIVE CHASSIS

The recharge port is installed at the end of the chassis. There is a dedicated channel for the wires to pass around the 28mm speaker:

The soundboard is installed with the SD card slot facing down

The 4 x 1.5mmOD rod will hold the 2 front covers, and the 2 CC inserts.
After having installed the led and crystal into the CC inserts:
1) insert the rods from the front of the chassis, thus first entering the front side covers.
2) Then add the CC insert 2, pass the rods through.
3) Then insert CC Insert 1 and finish passing the rods into into.
4) Super glue will then be needed to secure the CC insert from moving.

The battery goes in the front

The speaker in inserted sideways, and pushed in.
The speaker cover can then be added behind the speaker and locked with the 2 x 1.5mmOD rods on the soundboard side (as well as the 3 soundboard optional covers plates).
