Have mercy: This Zelda: Breath of the Wild light-up Guardian Sword is my jam

0

Someone print me one please

Twitter user Porzellan recently put up a pretty badass and stoic demonstration of a 3D-printed Guardian Sword from Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the ensuing video it's worth 13 seconds of your time.

The process involves using translucent PLA filament because "it’s really easy to use and will let the NeoPixel LEDs shine through." According to the instructions "the parts were 3D printed on a Type A Machines Series 1 Pro 3D printer (which typically go for $4,000). It’s got a massive build volume of 12 by 12 by 12 inches, so it’s great for making huge parts."

Porzellan notes that if you want to make the same rockin' piece, you can head over to Adafruit for instructions. We tracked them down here and listed the part requirements below. Be sure and share yours via our quickpost or blog system if you decide to make one of your own!
