Asuna's Lambent Light by Soynuts Asuna's Lambent Light by Soynuts
This sword took about 1 month to do, though I was distracted with other props as well.

For this sword I used the 3D file provided by Jackarage as seen here: [link]

Everything but the blade and jewels were 3D printed. The blade uses 0.5 inch thick poplar wood. I casted the 2 blue gems with Tap Plastics Clear Cast Resin.

I will be doing a full write up/guide on my website Soynuts Props in the near future. You can also see progress pics on my FB Fan page: My Facebook Fan Page.

Here is a close up shot of the hilt: [link]

Also, would you be willing to share what scaling size you used for the pieces? when i loaded them up to create g-codes, the pieces didn't look like they were scaled right

The handle should be about 8 inches long.  The STL was saved with the units as inches.  So scale it up by 25.4 to get mm.

How do you convert a C4D file to a file that can be printed by a 3D printer?

Hi! I've tried everything and installed every program and I can't open these files... The Elucidator and Dark Repulser posted on your site worked fantastically but I can't open the Lambent Light for the life of me. Any way you could help me out?? I think the problem is when I unzip the files my pc recognizes the stl files in the wrong format. (we've tried everything to bypass this) Would it be possible to have the unzipped stl files posted? (on your website would be fine too!!) 

And your work is absolutely fantastic!!!! Keep it up!

You need to open/import the file in a 3D application that can support it and then export the model to stl.  Sketchup or Blender should be able to do this if you do not have Cinema4D.  I believe I used sketchup at the time.

Sorry to bother you again, but when I try to open the file in Sketchup, I get the error "This does not appear to be a Sketchup model" how can I still open it?

Give me a bit to go through my STL files I created.  I need to see which STLs are the correct ones as I created a ton to eventually get it to a proper format that would print.

Sorry for the delay, I had to sort through my many stl files to find the ones I had optimized.  You can grab them here: www.soynutsprops.com/plans/Lig…

Hey I know that this post was made a while ago, but is it possible you could upload the .stl files of the sword handle/hilt too? The previously uploaded files don't contain the actual handle part.

Ah But how come 3D printed?? I'm doing an Asuna cosplay for summer/spring so I have plenty of time to make the sword or even save money to buy it but... The thing is the PVC sword costs a LOT!! and I'm looking for easy tutorials (It won't be easy xD) And I'm a beginner at this sword prop making! And the con that I will be going to only accepts props made of light wood and light plastic... so I was thinking about rigid insolation foam. Do you have an suggestions I can take??
Reply
:iconsoynuts:
Soynuts Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Insulation foam would be tricky to use on such a thin sword.  I 3D printed because it is easier for me and I own a 3D printer (I do sell the 3D printed parts for this sword [$35 USD + shipping]).  The 3D printed parts are both light and very strong.

The blade can be made from either styrene, sintra, wood (pine or poplar), or foam board.

For everything but the blade, buying the parts from me is probably the most cost and time effective.  But I can list other suggestions if you want to make the entire sword from scratch.

I'm so confused as to how 3D printing works. How does it??
Reply

Soynuts Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Depends on the type of 3D printer.  Mine uses ABS plastic and basically lays thin plastic on top of each other.

They range from $600-1200 DIY kits to $1500-3500 for pre-built ones.

My bad, I was getting it mixed up. XD I just looked at the actual design again and I realize it seems that it should be just a bit lighter blue with a very slight tint of green to it.

You either need your own 3D printer or make use of a site like shapeways.com

Nice work.

Although, I think the blue on the handle and guard should be a lighter color.
Leaning more toward a green actually.

But the construction is really great.

Thanks! Ya, the paint wasn't exactly the color I wanted. I've been relying too much on spray cans, so color mixing is not much of my forte. I plan to do some more practicing and learning to use a spray gun so I'm ready for the dark repulsor.
