STL models Shard of Azzinoth for 3D printing

$10.00

STL models Shard of Azzinoth for 3D printing, styled after the game appearance in World of Warcraft. Modified to be friendly for led lights. Not included: 32mm cylinder for handle (pipe or rod).

You are not licensed to sell 3dprint kits made using this STL, redistribute or adjust the digital files, unless for private use!

Printing instructions:
The STL files are ready to print, and are already oriented for an optimal 3d print result.
All parts can be nicely printed using ~4 walls and 15% infill and standard support settings.
I recommend to print the center part hollow with extra walls, that makes it easier to thread the electrics.
For the blade I 3dprinted it fully in transparent PETG, using 0.8mm walls and no infill for clarity and brightness of the leds.

Printing instructions:
The STL files are ready to print, and are already oriented for an optimal 3d print result.
All parts can be nicely printed using ~4 walls and 15% infill and standard support settings.
I recommend to print the center part hollow with extra walls, that makes it easier to thread the electrics.
For the blade I 3dprinted it fully in transparent PETG, using 0.8mm walls and no infill for clarity and brightness of the leds.

Finishing instructions:
The blade has slots underneath the center panels, where you can glue ledstrips easily.
The handle is sized for 32mm pipe or rod.
Use 150 grit sandpaper and filler primer spray to smooth a 3dprint before painting. Go up to 400-600 grit for a smoother result. Spraypaint can be used to paint any 3dprint, or other paints such as acrylics or airbrush.
Filler primer spray works great to reduce sanding effort and fill 3dprint lines.
The transparent blade is easiest to smooth out by applying a layer of epoxy resin, such as XTC3D by smooth-on. Then you may sand it to remove any further irregularities, clearcoat and paint it to keep it translucent enough for led lights. Paint should be transparent, not contain any fillers that make the paint opaque. Suggestions are for example transparent airbrush paint (such as createx) or alcohol ink. You can also tint the epoxy resin layer with resin dye to eliminate the need to paint.

 

The 3d models are made by me. The file is packed in a zip file. This can be unpacked by most operating systems without the need of additional applications into your useable STL files. If you do not unpack them, the models will not work!
