A barelless option would be awesome if you could do that as the rest of the print has no issues! And thabks for the help the ship printed out amazing on my ender 3 pro!

I'm assuming you're using an FDM printer - SLA I don't have experience with. The plastic there is probably the result of "stringing" - unfortunately this is a fairly common problem when the printer head has to jump between multiple objects (eg the barrels in this case - it has happened to me too). You can try to fiddle with the retraction settings of your printer - set the speed and distance higher and that might solve the problem. The setting is hidden among the advanced settings of cura - probably something similar in other slicing software. I've not yet managed to completely eliminate it with my Ender 3, though (probably through my ignorance or laziness), so I just carefully trim it away with a sharp craft-knife or scalpel when it happens. At worst, you can chop the gun barrels off entirely and drill little holes into which you can superglue bits of wire or plastic rod. (hmm - I should probably make a barrelless option with pre-printed holes).

So that worked but for some reason i end up with plastic in between the barels towards the top any idea how to fix this? Sry for all the questions im a super noob to this lol

Thank you ill try that out

I printed them on their backs, with the barrels pointing upward. It needs support, and is a bit fiddly, but is doable on an fdm machine

How did you orient the guns to print having a lot of trouble printing them
