Assassins Creed Hidden Blade by tbm0115 Aug 19, 2012


This is a model of the hidden blade used in the first Assassins Creed game. Based on popular switchblade designs can now be printed and assembled for a working replica. Intended for display and bragging rights only!

WARNING!! This object is very large by design and is meant for a Makerbot Replicators build plate!

These dimensions were meant for a MakerBot Replicator. Most files should be ready to go without need for rotating/centering the object. The only material concern lies with the Rotary Pin, which should be printed in PLA for its flexability.
Things you'll need:
1 - ~5 lbs tension spring
2 - pen springs or conical springs (model is built for simple pen springs)
1 - string of varying length (this is to activate mechanism with simple pull of your wrist)
2 - beads (to catch rotary)
2 - velcro bands or elastic bands (your choice, to put on your forearm)

hey tbm0115
Could give us an estimated date on when you think you'll get that new and improved blade done. Many of friends have asked me print them one and they are starting to get impatient. thanks

You should submit a design for a dual action hidden blade

Any Update to this? Did you ever redo the design? Very interested in making it but if your gonna re release it I'll wait.

You're missing a piece

Any instructions on assembly?

tbm0115 on Nov 25, 2012 said:

Not really, just because I'm still trying to redo the design to be more compact. I'm thinking I might move in a completely different direction on the mechanics too.

This looks amazing, my only question is how do you "load the pencil spring" into the base? Can't wait to see any updated designs.

Hey, nice work !
However, there are some issues in your design you should take consideration about (based on your Sketchup assembly) :
- The rotary enter in the matter of the rotary base (at least at the big corners)
- Ain't you afraid that the blade will be able to move in the "box" and also outside since your blade is only hold in position by the base plate and one "Spring Left (ou Right)" ? I mean, the gap between the blade and the "Error 404" part (the purple part in Sketchup) is huge !
- how will your string bypass the "Rotary Pin" (I think it is a anti-backspin latch right?) and then go back in position ?

I hope I help you a little !
But, I love the Top plate design (my futur design might look like this thank to you) !

Is it possible to create directly from Sketchup, IGS files instead of STL files ?

Does this actually work?

SaintJProductions on Oct 17, 2012 said:

Have you tried actually printing this out?

tbm0115 on Oct 17, 2012 said:

Yeah, I printed most of it and decided to stop. Now I'm waiting to get some time to redesign it and make it smaller. Perks of rapid prototyping :)

By chance, do you have the orgianl files? Like...CAD files or anything? I'd love to edit the files a bit to make the full size item on a smaller print bed!

tbm0115 on Sep 13, 2012 said:

The '.skp' file is the original file, I could try and convert it to a different file in mesh lab though if you'd like?

winmanwu on Sep 6, 2012 said:

hey love the design! but are there any other softwares you can use other than replicator g to print the object out cause my laptop wouldn't accept replicator g as a printing software for 3d objects

tbm0115 on Sep 6, 2012 said:

Yeah you could try Slic3r. You could also go onto the Replicator G website under generators and there is a list of popular G-Code generators (http://replicat.org/generators.... However, before delving into a new G-Code generator, try adding the '.stl' extension after the name of the file. If your computer automatically erases it after pressing enter, that means it accepted the new file type and try running it again in ReplicatorG. If after pressing enter it just, for example, says 'HB_Top_Plate.stl' as the name then you should probably try different software. Hope some of this helps :-D

Hey, just uploaded the sketchup file with some labels to try and show how each part interacts with each other. Just hide each part as you wish to see the associated parts (each label should be pointed to a corner or face of the object).

MrJohn on Aug 27, 2012 said:

Great work! I tried to make one kinda like this. I posted it as an "Extender" because there was a lot of controversy over weapons at the time.

Are you a member of the xiphoids forum on sinza exotic automatic? This design looks like one I saw on there a while back. Great job!

tbm0115 on Aug 27, 2012 said:

Sweet! Glad you like it! I thought about potential controversy and decided to mention that this is meant to be a model and not a weapon in the description lol. Besides that, no I'm not part of any forums. There was a YouTube video that was the basis for the design and my friend and I dreamed up some of the more intricate parts of the design. We're actually coming up with a new design that has easier assembly and can be screwed together without drilling through it (I'll post that as another thing though).

Can you list the dimensions of the largest part please?

tbm0115 on Aug 23, 2012 said:

lol I had the length at exactly 9" , but ReplicatorG wouldn't accept it. Now it is at 99% of 9".... sooooo 8.91" . Everything in the model is scaled down with the top and bottom pieces.
