The Master Sword from LOZ Breath of the Wild has been on my list to model for a while. This is a 10" desk friendly version.
The Grey Matteforge Matte PLA used to print this design was provided by Printed Solid:
I modeled this with a 2.4mm hole down the center to allow reinforcement and as a way to keep the parts together. I used Ook 14 gauge wire:
The wire can be easily straightened using a block of wood and a drill. Just search YouTube for "straighten wire control rods" to find a great video showing how to do this.
I have included a STEP file in the downloads for easy customization.
