The Young Wolf's Howl, Exotic Sword from Destiny's Rise of Iron

Prints (2)


Here is the Young Wolf's Howl, the 3rd year exotic sword from Bungie's hit game Destiny. The sword itself is 1:1 scale, measuring over four and a half feet long, and includes both channels for reinforcement rods and a slot-and-tab alignment system with the blade.

The Details:

9 pieces total

Cut to print for a 200mmx150mmx200m height bed

Assembled height: 140cm/ 55 inches

Estimated total print time and filament usage: 

3mm layer height, 10% infill, supports on: 425 grams filament, 23 1/2 hours

(These numbers will vary greatly if you decide to print with higher resolution/more infill, etc.... I printed the lower detailed areas of my sword at .2mm/20% infill, and the upper at .3mm/10%, and my prints took about 40 hours)

Here are the measurements for the reinforcement rods in the blade and handle. You can use wood dowels, metal rod or plastic pipes, whatever will fit the channels. I use metal rods from the hardware store.

Rods should be approximately 4.8mm (3/8 inch) in diameter: TWO x 970mm (38 1/4 inches) ONE x 350mm (13 3/4 inches) ONE x 98mm (3 7/8 inches)

I use 2-part epoxy (usually 5 minute because I have no patience) to glue everything together. Assembly is very easy, but I recommend test-fitting everything once before gluing.

Thanks for checkin' this out.
