I present to you the Ravager Blade from Monster Hunter Series, as it would be my entry design for the competition made possible by Capcom and MyMiniFactory teams.
I am truly proud of the blade I made as it is by far the largest prop I ever created in addition to the time to it took to print, and the reaction I received from friends who saw it! Some are asking me if I can make them the same sword although they never played the game!
The design is detailed after the Ravager Blade in every bit, even in the part where the fin blades on the side retract in and out, I maintained the appearance to be 100% identical and had to be creative on the part of how these fins would stay in place when they are out without spinning, in addition, there was a trial and error on the ride to get here, for example the handle stick had to be printed horizontally in order to be able to withstand the weight of the blade.
The Blade is about 1.5 m, and weighs around 2 kg.
Total Print Time 172 hours, 1 week.
Don’t let the humongous size fool you when it comes to the complexity of printing it, it is fairly easy! Support was only required in one part only of the blade which is “13 – Frame pt.2”, as the slider openings on the side required a bit of support, barely 10 grams user there.
All the parts are set in their original orientation I used for printing.
The blade parts uploaded are huge in size as it would produce a blade with the total dimension of 146.5 cm X 53.8 cm X 7.8 cm
In addition, the largest print requires a build plate not less than 30 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm.
Feel free to scale down the size of the parts, but make sure to do it across all the parts identically.
I acknowledge the terms of the competition and herby present the Ravager Blade as my entry design, and may the best hunter wins!
