Inspired from Breath of the Wild and the Adafruit guardian sword build. Seemed like a logical next step to combine the two and since ChaosCoreTech had already released a fantastic model to start with I opted to use that as my base to remix.
Designed to be printed on a CR-10 S5 so the pieces are in the 450-525mm length. Obviously that's not going to fly for the average printer but I wanted to test my build volume since it's a 500mm cube! Another major reason for making the parts so big was to reduce the visible seams when light passes through. Aside from welding material into the cracks then sanding I don't know a better way to handle seams beyond molding and casting. Eventually I will make an effort to modify the parts to work on smaller build plates, but I don't know how soon..Print Settings
Creality CR-10 S5
Okay for this build I'd advise printing it in PLA on a heated glass bed with a layer of glue stick applied for adhesion. Glass makes a beautiful mirror finish that pops off easily and gives you a really flat surface.
You'll need; Adafruit hardware (see guardian sword build for parts list) PLA/ABS natural white (not clear- it's too clear) Large format printer
