Life-Sized, 3d-printable sword!

Posted by on Friday, July 29, 2011 in Uncategorized

Sword of Omens

The thing about this Thingiverse item is that the whole 1980s cartoon aspect (Thundercats, no less) actually detracts from the fact that this is a life-sized 3d-printable sword.  Yes, that’s right: I said a life-sized 3d-printable sword.

That’s pretty epic, and we all need to tip our caps to cyclone for his imagination and dedication.  Well done, and I suspect that this may not be the last of its type.  I’m sure that there will be a number of dirks, daggers, katanas, and shivs before we know it.  But will any of them be better than this charmer?  The gauntlet has been thrown.

And be careful out there, folks: it’s all fun and games until somebody puts an eye out, as my grandmother might say.

    Totally agree on the “detracts from” comment. There’s a fine line between “I so want to print that” and “if I wanted a Thundercats sword, I could buy one at Kmart.” The design work is great though. If it weren’t a Thundercats sword, I’d print it.

    Make it. Just vary it slightly so it can’t be pegged exactly, and tell no one where you got the idea.
