Hey guys,

As I said above, I wanted to build an E11. I purchased an ABS pipe that the hardware guys said was 1 1/4  and it even says 1 1/4 and made in usa on the side. I cut it to 18.5 inches.
Now here is the idiot half of my fail. I have printed the templates several times and without borders. Oddly I had to use the 1.5 version, but it fits arround perfectly. The fail part is that the pipe would easily need to be 19.5 or even 20 inches long for the templates to fit.
I know others have used the templates, so my question is, what am I doing wrong?
I am just started and soooo stuck. Sad
Please help.

What is the OD measurement of your 1.5" ABS pipe. I used 1-1/4" PVC and 18.5" was plenty. If the printed template is sized correctly to wrap around a larger diameter pipe, the length could be scaled up also. My 1-1/4 PVC schedule 40 pipe measures 1.66" OD (about 1-5/8" diameter).

I wouldn't really call that epic fail.

The front template, with all the holes, should be 8" long. The rear template, with the mag port and bolt lever should be 10 3/8" long.


Make the 2 templates fit within those two spaces.

More than anything else, these templates are guidelines. You can tweak your blaster here or there, or fudge a bit of detail if it's too much to deal with at the moment.

The fun is in the process. Enjoy the build and relax. Your blaster will come out great and it'll be the only one of it's kind.

Thanks for the reply guys.
My pipe is 1 5/8 OD and 1 3/8 ID.
I think my two problems are, lack of confidence  Mad  and a screwy printer.
I think I need to try using the 1 1/4  template and try to get the %  right. I think the printer is just not printing it right for some reason since originally the 1 1/4 is a little too big when printed and the 1.5 was a little too small.
Printers never were my favorite. And I won't even talk about power tools. Lol
But I love Star Wars.  Very Happy

You have to play with the printer settings until the print is ok for your tube.

The other thing to consider doing would be to make your own template, using pieces of the imperial armory templates that are printed to scale.
