What brand/color paint did you use for the blade? It looks amazing, printing now!

I used Krylon metallic silver spray paint on that one, but I used Spaz Stix Ultimate Mirror Chrome on the new version of the sword that I made, which I haven't uploaded files for yet. If you put a glossy black base coat, then the mirror chrome, then the Spaz Stix mirror chrome clear coat, I think it looks a lot better than the Krylon.

Here are the two finishes side by side:

Not 100% sure, but I believe a print of this model is trending on Reddit. There was no attribution so I'm hoping the post is yours.

Thanks for the link. That is not me, but is also not this model. I do wish I had a printer that big though.

Printed beautifully at 4" overall length. Cut it down the edge of the blade so I could print it in two halves. There was a small gap on the first few layers, but it wasn't a problem removing it from the print bed.

Cool, I'd love to see a picture!

That gap happened when I combined the blade and hilt in 123D Design. I'm guessing I could get rid of it in Blender, but it didn't cause me any problems while printing at full size.

Just posted a "make" with a couple pics of it.

In the process of printing a small ~4" long version of this. Noticed right where the blade meets the handle there's a void on the inside that makes for a void in the printing. Might be worth deleting the solid piece on the inside. Not sure if that serves a purpose or not.

it doesn't work because the hilt is resting on an uneven part and is not leveled

Yes, it won't be printable in a single piece. I had to cut it into 11 pieces to print the whole sword. Use Netfabb to cut it, then glue the pieces together.

this is truly amazing I didn't think my hilt was worth this much lol
