Making a Star Wars Death Star Corridor Diorama!

Today’s build is a rite-of-passage for figure collectors and miniature modelmakers: a Star Wars-inspired Death Star corridor diorama! Norm designs his take on the iconic backdrop for 1:12 scale figures (6″ tall, like the Star Wars Black Series) and laser cuts acrylic pieces to slot together for a satisfying assembly that perfectly fits into IKEA Detolf, Kallax, or Billy shelves.

  1. Very cool!

    Care to share your Glowforge settings? I ordered some of the Styrene sheets to mess with. Are you covering it with your own tape?

    PS. The Thingiverse link in your description has a space in it making it invalid to click.

  2. for acrylic on glowforge i typically start with proofgraded material settings and then slow the speed down to ensure it does a full cut regardless of variation in material thickness (usually 150 speed).

    for the .04 styrene i did 150 speed, 35 power, and 2 passes!

  3. definitely thinking about the tantive iv cooridor where leia puts the message in R2, but woudl want to do it 1/6 scale for my sideshow r2 deluxe figure. that could end up pretty big!

  4. given how evocative the shapes in that setting are, i bet there is a lot of room to play with how much (or rather: how little) you have to build in order to make it appear in the mind’s eye.

  5. Am so excited that my ex husband is back into my life after we had a serious argument which led to him leaving me, my life was a mess without him because he was my source of happiness i tried calling him but he didn’t answer my call but everything came to an end after i contacted this genuine and powerful spell caster called DR Padman who cast a love spell on my ex husband to make him realize how much he loves me and that we are meant to be together forever, since then we have never had a quarrel again and our love for each other has continue to grow each day. contact him now for urgent love spell at padmanlovespellor padmanlovespellor add him up on WhatsApp +19492293867 web site

  6. The Thingverse files have no compensation for kerf. What are your settings for kerf offset on the Glowforge? Hoping to reproduce this with a friend’s GF. Haven’t been able to find any specifics on the kerf width from a GF.
