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:
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.
ProffieBoard can be also installed using this adapter.
Battery, 26650 3.7v battery
⇒ 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 or Neopixel
 Switches, tactile switches are included with the hilt
 Speaker, 28mm Speaker, bass or flat
 Accent Leds, 5mm for the crystal chamber, 3mm for other accent leds.
 Wires, 30awg wires are recommended on most our 3D Printed chassis. We are buying them from this eBay seller. We use 24awg PTFE wires on Neopixel install for battery and led strip + and -.
 Heat shrink tubing, to protect your solder joints.
 1″ OD blade or 7/8″ OD blade (with adapter).

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:Use small wires to make your install easier
=> for Tri-cree install 30awg for main wires and 32awg  for accent leds and switches are highly recommended
=> for Neopixel 24awg PTFE for main wires (battery and led strip + and -), and 32awg  for accent leds and switches are highly recommended

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 3: Recharge port wiring reminder:

MULTIBOARDS ADAPTIVE CHASSIS

Padawan

The install is pretty straight forward.

First, the 2 main chassis part need to be joined and glued together. Four 1.5mmOD  are used to support and give strength to the assembly.
The recharge port is installed at the end of the chassis, with a cover to be glued to hide it.
There is a dedicated channel for the wires to pass around the 28mm speaker. Once the speaker inserted, there is a cover as well to be glued. Finally, the battery slot also has a cover to be glued.

The led module or neopixel connector needs to be secured in the emitter part using a retention screw.
Once the led module and the switches are installed in the emitter part, then wired to the soundboard, the chassis can be inserted and will need to be secured by retention screws as well. Re(using the existing holes to tap 8632 retention screw would be the best way to proceed.
