Description

ATTENTION (29.06.2024 10:00 Germany):

If you have problems with printing the hilt (you really need the setup of my profile - do not change anything!!) please use the beginner version. This version is without supports but also has no different “stone-levels”.

 

EDIT (29.06.2024 16:15 Germany):

I tagged the profiles with different user experience levels and added some more text within the description.

And please guys do me a favour → if you are inexperienced stop giving one star ratings just because you are not willed to read..

 

-------------------------------------------------------

 

Hi guys,

 

this is my magic minecraft sword. There are two versions the way you can use it:

 

  • the sculpture (use the NON LED Base)
  • the lamp (use the LED Kit Base) → I used silver silk filament as I ran out of grey. That is the reason it's shining through (see the picture). It should not shine through with usual grey PLA filament.

But there is also a distinction regarding the user experience level. When you just want to print the model without any further knownledge just print the [Beginner] version of the hilt and you are ready to go. If you are an advanced 3d printer and want to test out something new then the [Advanced] version will may satisfy you. So what is the difference:

  • [Advanced] → the hilt has different stone levels and needs support. But using PLA as support on PLA or even using support PLA for PLA will not return good results regarding this model. So I experienced around and came to a final cool solution. What exactly did I do? Just jump to the next passage and you will may learn something new :) If you want to use that level just make sure to use the correct [Advanced] profile for the base you want to use (sculpture or lamp).

     

  • [Beginner] → the hilt has NO different stone levels and supports are NOT neccessary. But be carefull. The different experience profiles are NOT compatible with each other. So please make sure to use only [Beginner] profiles.

The filament I used:

ATTENTION (UPDATE 24.06.2024 23:26 Germany):

In order to improve the light throughput I exchanged this part

with this part (2x)

 

This improves the light throughput tremendously!

 

Before:

 

After the mod:

P.S.: my base is still the prototype printed in silk PLA not completely blocking the light. that's why it's shining through! this is just because I ran out of grey filament. grey should completely block the light behind 2 walls.

Assembly:

 

Easy remove of supports:

ATTENTION:

when you print the hilt <<PETG>> is used for the interface layer. this is no error! this creates a perfect surface and is easy to remove. Just two more hints → make sure to use transparent PETG. Not using transparent PETG will may leave some color on the hilts surface! You should also NOT use MATT PLA because there could be some extras in the filament which CAN stick to PETG (and this is exactly what we do not want ;)).

 

Whenever your object only partially hits the print plate you need supports. I think this is quite clear ;) 

When you print PLA and also use PLA as support interface you might get in trouble regarding the surface. Here a few examples:

 

  • you get an ugly surface
  • you might need to clean the object and need a lot of time for this
  • using special support PLA might remain on the object (white surface)

PVA is solving this but there is also another simple / efficient / cheap solution!

 

Using different materials which are not printable on each other also resolve this issue e.g. PLA on PETG or vice versa. They remain on each other during printing but you can simply get them off without any cleaning / issues:

 

The surface is much more clean and most of the time all material is easily removeable without any further cleaning!

 

See the complete video for more details:

 

BR & happy printing!

print came out alright, it is a little flimsy in the bottom of the hilt. But it works. I used PLA support instead of PETG, I don’t have the plate to do that. I also used Green PETG for the sword. looks good. Thank you for sharing!!

thx for sharing :) this looks great in green! even your hilt looks better than mine. I assume that you used black support PLA? I just had white support PLA which tended to remain on the surface and was visible due to its color. yep - to get a propper bottom of the blade is a nightmare. I printed it serveral times to find a way that the bottom is completely printed at all because the plate's touchpoint was not enough and the walls where moving away. finally it came to the uploaded profile but there is the tradeoff regarding the first 20 layers. edit: ahh sorry - you wrote that the hilt is a bit filmsy.. I thought you were writing about the blade. I don't see any problems at your hilt. it's that thin because my first intention was to make it completely transparent but I changed my mind during prototyping.

I used white support PLA. it was a fun print and I just used all your pre-sets. you did a great job! way better than anything I could pull off.

thank you very much :) hmmm - I had problems with the white support PLA. the surface was perfect but it was hard to remove and also remained as white color on the black surface. the petg worked much better for me.

So now with pictures. I can confirm, the bottom of the hilt is a little hard to assemble and the lid of the base (with led) was a bit to hard too... but after some time it should move normaly...

thanks for sharing - it looks perfectly :) hmmm - there should be enough tolerances. which printer do you have? I printed it with my x1c. I had more tolerances issues in the past when I was printing other models with my p1s. for the future I will may rather use 0.2mm instead of 0.15

I have a x1c too. I think it's normal to clean the prints from small errors or rests. I was a little in a hurry and didn't checked everything, so that may be the problem. Perhaps, the only thing that I would change is the base, to make it even with the hilt in the back side... but that it's just optics.

hmm that's a good hint. I can change the base in that way. first it was intended to shift in that transparent part which I exchanged via the other two transparent parts. the back wall was a kind of support.

Hello, when I printed the blade part, it was very fragile and broke even before I could assemble it. Do you have any better parameters for reference and adjustment?

I think it's rather about the filament and not the parameters. what kind of filament are you using? my blade is quite robust with the bambu translucent petg.

Got it, I used PLA. I'll try PETG. Thanks for the response.

Buenas me gusta mucho el diseño. Aunque no me gusta mucho eso de los soportes que le pones para sujetar las piezas del mango. No seria mejor o separarlas o hacerlas todas en la misma capa y usar el ams para los cambios de color??

hi :) could you please translate the text to english and double check whether the meaning stays the same? I tried to translate but it's quite weird and I don't get the message 🙈

Good night ! I really like the design. Although I don't really like the supports you put on it to hold the pieces of the sword handle. Wouldn't it be better to separate them or make them all on the same layer and use the ams for the color changes?

Replying to @neotechnology76 :
I still don't get you completely but I will try to answer the question. so the question is -> why do I not make the layers of the hilt even in order to get rid of the supports? I like the design that the front / back is not completely even. I know the supports are not nice but for that reason I did all my researches. so if you have not yet read my complete text / saw the second video -> there I give hints how to get a nice surface even with the supports enabled.

Hi, I printed the sword this weekend, and I must say it was really cool. Thanks for the Model! ( I used the "advanced" version and everything worked perfectly fine) Instead of resync my AMS in BL studio after opening the .3mf I just hit the print button and let the programm find the right filaments
