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]

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

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…

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??
