Summary

My son first drew something he wanted printed on paper...it was a sword. He then helped me draw it in Inventor and then we decided we would make it into Finn's Adventure Time sword.

We used a 10mm Rhinestone for the Gem and believe it or not it does have magical powers! When we were finished, it made him smile and say "That is the best thing we've made on our 3D Printer ever!"

We painted it using acryllic paints - Silver for the blade, Gold for the guard & handle end, and brown for the handle.

So now it's Time to go on an Adventure!

Instructions

  1. Print on a raft
  2. Paint using colors of your choice
  3. Apply a 10mm Rhinestone to both sides of Finn's sword with sticky back or glue it
  4. Go have an Adventure!

But this isn't Finn's sword ._.

Thanks! It was rather simple, but possibly the most 'fun' item I've made. Specifically because of sharing and watching my son help and participate in the design and 3D CAD part, final printing and painting. It was worth every bit.

How did u give the sword color and a glowing gem

We just used acryllic paints for the colors. The gem "glowing" was actually unintentional. I got lucky - It was the flash from my phone reflecting back when I took the picture. I didnt try to get it to do that, but the first picture I took reflected perfectly and looked great to us. (My son figured that was part of the magic!)

Glad you like it. The fact that this his "thought" can be made 3D is great. Then when I see my child get excited about it, it's awesome. From his thought to paper to something that can actually be held, it is really satisfying.

This is awesome, and the story behind it is more awesome.  I'm looking forward to my son drawing up new toys for himself!
