26 August 2016
This Star-Wars inspired 3D printing kit features a unique design, the Sith model is a cutaway design that depicts the internal construction of the hilt.
Referring to the video posted on YouTube by Tested, Sean Charlesworth, the artist, was inspired to design and print his own lightsaber, but in a rather innovative way.
The Sith Lightsaber kit features a custom cutaway saber kilt, designed to be printed on the Formlabs Form 2 printer. This particular 3D printer can print in high-resolution using multiple materials, so the design will look great from the offset.
According to a description on Pinshape, the saber is designed to be glued together with the cutaway portions held together with magnets. The saber can light up with personalised LED’s and a rechargeable battery system disguised in the pommel.
