3d printed trans white telescopic blade
« on: July 23, 2015, 07:38:36 PM »
Has anyone attempted something like this with a 3d printer? Lots of telescoping pieces so it shrinks down to a few inches concealed fully in the hilt? Wouldn't be very duel-worthy but would be extremely portable and probably look pretty good whipping out of a hilt as you turn on the LED... If it was thin and white it might be a decent diffuser by itself

I think you would see the seems of the segments just like on those cheap toys. I don't think there is any way to avoid noticing the light being brighter at those telescoping seem areas.




I'm afraid the deflector shield with be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Yeah, that's probably true, but with enough segments it might even out a little. I don't expect it would be perfect but I'd be intrigued to see someone try it :)

The more segments actually the more you would see the seams and also the more you have the thinner they would need to be.
