Summary

Asajj Ventress' Lightsaber! Another cool, curved design for Count Dooku's Sith apprentice.

Be sure to print 5 of the Upper Grip Inserts and two of the Pommel Inserts Outer and Inner pieces. All of the STLs are in the orientation I printed them, personally I printed the Lower Emitter, Upper Grip and Upper Emitter with supports generated in Cura, but as always let me know if you found a better way. The grip parts are all labeled with their respective numbers on top because they are all just similar enough to get confusing. All of the tolerances on them are pretty tight, this may cause some tolerance stack up issues with the crossbars, however the crossbars are scaled with that in mind. let me know if this causes any issues. Happy Printing!

First, I want to say thank you so much for creating this. My wife has been bugging me to print Ventress' Lightsaber for her, and I just don't have the modeling skills beyond a bit of TinkerCad.

And then just wanted to give you a heads up that the pommel appears to be tilted 1 degree on the X-axis. Layers 2-4 wanted to print in the air. I'm not certain if that was by design or not, but wanted to let you know. :)

WOW, amazing work on these lightsaber hilts!!
Would it be possible to upload the assembled files for all of your lightsabers as well?
I want to scale down them and print some lightsabers for my 6 inch figures as well.
Thx man. Job well done!!

This looks gorgeous. I wish i could slip a blade and electronics into it though.

It would be more difficult with this one for sure, some people have taken my saber and done that like this one: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:193156

Ahsoka Tano's Lightsabers (Clone Wars)

Love these 3D files. I'm in the middle of printing one of these sabers and I'm not sure of the scale.
It seems pretty thin compared to the other sabers in my collection. Is this a very slender saber hilt?

Asajj's hilt is pretty slender in comparison to the others, that was something I played around with a lot while modeling this one. If you look at the Hasbro toy it's a lot bulkier, but I suspect most that size came from the necessity of batteries and electronics within the hilt. So I derived the size from looking at the sabers in Ventress' hands in the clone wars and given her smaller, slender frame I chose to make these a little smaller.

Most of the cylindrical hilts are about an inch and half in diameter, I feel like Kanan's is a little small, I may change that one day.

Thank you for responding. I'll finish printing and see how i like it. So far i've only printed a few parts. It's a great design.

Would you please take a look at the "AsajjVentress-_Upper_Grip" piece that is posted here. One corner is shaved off WAY more than the other three, but it doesn't seem to correlate to any matching surface on the "lower_emitter". I've inserted the "upper_grip" into the "lower_emitter" in both orientations, and either way it just leaves a big gap where that corner is much more steeply angled. Am I missing something in how these pieces are supposed to go together?

Thanks, Brad, for such a great design. This is definitely one of my favorites. I'm going to need to print two in order to have the matched set. ;-)

Thanks! just re-uploaded a corrected file. I usually export as an STL in Solidworks and then bring it into Rhino to orient the STLs for upload, but this time I exported as an IGES so I could handle the angled pieces more accurately and then exported from Rhino as an STL, guess I won't do that again.

Thanks so much for fixing this. This one looks correct. Reprinting now. Hopefully I'll have the finished product posted in a few hours.

Great, looking forward to seeing it.

I suggest that you make a connector for each of the lightsaber handles so they can make a saber staff. like in the Clone Wars.

Maybe magnets on the end of the handle?

Really good work, THANK YOU

Thanks! I intend to do something soon so two can connect. I've been delayed a lot due to flooding in my area.
