    Help required. I have started the rifle out the movie Oblivion, and Im having trouble with the ends of the barrel, it seems no matter how many times I print they are too big, has anyone done this model. (pict attached)

    I have an idea: Measure the length of the edges of the parts in question and compare them with the length of the edges of the barrel. Then do some maths: "length barrel edge" / "length edge end piece" to get the scaling factor the end pieces have to be printed. Then print them again and check out the results. If that doesn't work just trim the pieces manually but make sure that you keep the angles.
