I printed one and then I printed the lightsaber.
Do I have to break Yoda's hand to insert the sword?
Thank you

i never tried to fit the light saber into his hand, but i'm guessing you'd need to carefully drill through the hand with a larger drill bit to make the light saber fit. either that or sand down the handle on the light saber. or both.

sorry, i don't have much advice for you. but i do remember the 3D model would have a smaller hole than the diameter of the light saber. i just added the light saber as a request after i finished the yoda model.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I try to change Yoda because I hold the sword ...
Thank you!

That's what I was thinking...so needs a green piece of clear plastic for his lightsaber (just need to know how big the hole in his hand is)
Very cool!

Great model, I just printed one :)

Do you have the lightsaber model?

nice print KyneSilverhide. i'll try to find his light saber and integrate it into the model. do you prefer it on the model w/ or w/o pupils? also, do you want the light saber in 2 parts-- beam + handle (will require a lot of finesse and testing on my part) or 1 part.... or totally separate from the body (also in 2 or 3 parts -- requiring drilling through the hand and a 2 part handle............

i think i'll just integrate it into the latest model for now (depending on the cross section of the beam).

I think a separate model should be fine, even if that requires some drilling.

PS : note that the model can't stay on its feet due to the position, so it needs a base (that's why I took a picture of the model next to my mouse)

do you think i should model a base or just add M3 screw holes inside the feet? most people probably don't have an M3 tap, but i really don't want to model the base. let me know what you think is best.

I would simply post a link to a working base, such as https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:659601 (not tested, but the size should be OK)

Model base round 10cm diameter
