**If you like this project PLEASE take a moment to vote for it in the 3d Printer Contest through the link above. A second printer would go a long way toward rapidly prototyping and sharing new products. Help us contribute to Open Source 3d Printing. We sincerely thank you for your support!

This is a fully open source 3D Printable Ninja Sword Lamp. It is both easy to build (providing you have access to a 3D printer) and very affordable. My total cost to build was less then $32 and I have included links to where I purchased the electronics. These parts can be found from many other vendors. All links provided are not to be considered endorsements. They are simply where I happen to make my purchases. The build took about an hour including the hand filing of 3D prints and was very simple. That time frame does not include the time needed to print the pieces. This lamp is super bright, easy to control and it looks awesome!

Quick question, Does the diffuser run the length of the blade or just the first section?

Ahhh nevermind, I read the instructables page
