Prop Build: Star Wars Battlefront Impact Grenade

"Having a smaller blast radius than a Thermal Detonator, the Impact Grenade explodes directly on contact with any object, as the name suggests.

Since the Impact Grenade has the smallest blast radius of any other grenade, it can be very difficult if the player is using the grenade at enemies from far distances, because the damage could be much smaller than expected. If the enemy is only within 1 meter, they'll only get damaged by a small amount."

This is the first 3D print project I have run off of my 3D printer, working on building up some skills in model finishing. This is also my first build video showing the process from start to finish. This, like the Republic Credits, is something simple which ends up as a 1:1 replica when complete. I chose this because of the great model I found on Thingiverse which was a good starting point.

if you wanted to build this yourself (and have access to a 3D printer). They were printed in 1.75mm  Prusa silver PLA, using Slic3r as the slicing software and the Prusa i3 Mk2 to print it.

I did not take many photos during the build process, as everything was filmed instead. However I have taken some glamour shots of the final product which show how it turned out, which I think is pretty well.
